BYRAM, MS (Mississippi News Now) -

The City of Byram has officially started groundwork on their newest development that's expected to create hundreds of new jobs in the area.

Walmart is the first major store being built in this new development and is expected to open its doors soon.

This development will also be the site of three other commercial development properties, sitting just to the west of Walmart. 

Mayor Richard White described this development as, "A great opportunity for our city. I think it's certainly going to help our sales tax situation. It's an economic catalyst that's going to make things a lot better for all of us."

Residents are excited too! Samantha Roberts says, "I think it's going to be convenient for people who live around here because we won't have to travel so far to go to Walmart."

Walmart will open its doors soon. As for the rest of the development, it should be complete in the spring.
