Retail giant Walmart has opened another “Supercenter” store in New Jersey.
The 170,000-square-foot store is located at The Shops at Ledgewood Commons shopping center (461 Route 10, Ledgewood), which is in a section of Roxbury Township in Morris County.
It opened Wednesday and has created more than 400 jobs, according to a statement.
The “Supercenter” replaces a 120,000-square-foot Walmart that was demolished last year at the same location. Unlike the old store, this one will have a full grocery department along with a grocery pickup option.

There are currently about 70 Walmart stores in New Jersey, according to the company’s website.
Walmart is gearing up to hold a huge online-only sale with “Black Friday-like savings” that will compete against Amazon Prime Day. The “Big Sale” event starts Sunday at 7 p.m. and runs through Oct. 15. Items that will be part of the sale include electronics, home goods, toys, beauty and apparel.
The sale follows the company’s launch of its new subscription shopping service, Walmart+, which offers unlimited, same-day delivery. Other perks include savings on gas at fuel stations and access to the “Scan & Go” feature in the Walmart app. It costs $12.95 a month or $98 a year, and includes a 15-day free trial.
