As many as six Walmart stores are planned for the District starting later this year.

With the "living wage" bill targeting Walmart officially dead thanks to a veto from D.C. Mayor Vincent Gray, the big box retailer says its ready to start hiring local residents.

Walmart says it's expediting plans for its first two stores in D.C. and is opening two hiring centers to help staff the stores. One center is for the H Street store at 99 H Street Northwest and the other is for the Georgia Avenue location on Eastern Avenue Northwest.

Both are slated to open late this year or early next year.

The hiring centers will be open 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. Residents can apply online — the centers will facilitate interviews and help residents apply for jobs who don't have access to the internet.
