BEAVERTON. Ore. Walmart will be opening a new store in Beaverton that officials said will be different from its usual big box stores.

The new Walmart store will be located in what is currently the Ashley Furniture Home Store on Cornell Rd. It will be a neighborhood market with only groceries and household supplies.

It's an outright allowed use in the zoning code, said Don Mazziotti with the City of Beaverton. It's a retail grocery store, about 43,000 feet in size, a little smaller than a Safeway and way smaller than a Walmart superstore.

Mazziotti said the city has not had any opposition to the plan.

Walmart has not yet announced the exact date that the new store will open.
