KANSAS CITY, Kan. -- Residents in the Argentine neighborhood of Kansas City, Kan., are getting a new place to shop for groceries. A Walmart Neighborhood Market is setting up shop.

It's been a long time since residents in the area had a neighborhood grocery store. Now the are getting two. A Walmart Neighborhood Market, along with a Save-a-Lot will give residents without transportation a place to grab milk, bread and eggs without catching a bus or having to call for a taxi.

This development is part of a small retail development called La Plaza Argentine. It will be anchored by the Walmart market and include a Save-a-Lot and a family dollar store... Welcome news to residents including David Estell, who says he's lived in the area for about six years and is glad the so-called food desert is now getting a new oasis.

"It's going to bring a lot of customers and a lot of money and open jobs for people in the Wyandotte area and create opportunity for people who don't have jobs," he said.

Walmart is expected to open in about six months.
