Walmart says that it will be bringing 250 jobs to the Iron Range when their new location opens this summer in Mt. Iron.

Applications are currently being accepted at a temporary hiring center: Eichorn's Furniture at 302 N. Second Ave. in Virginia, Monday through Friday from 8 a.m. to 8 p.m. and Saturday from 8 a.m. to 6 p.m. 

First priority will be given to veterans, the company said in a release. Under Walmart's Veterans Welcome Home Commitment, the company will offer a job to any qualified veteran who has been honorably discharged within the past year. 

According to store manager Steven Stein, the store will be hiring both full- and part-time associates. 

"In addition to bringing Walmart's everyday low prices to Mountain Iron, the new store will also provide valuable jobs to the community," said Stein in a news release. "I look forward to meeting interested applicants who want to build careers at Walmart."  

The majority of new associates will begin work in July to help prepare the store for its grand opening.
