LIVINGSTON, TX (KTRE) -

Walmart officials have begun the process of hiring new employees at its Livingston location after being closed since April.

"We are pleased to announce we plan to re-open the Livingston store," said Anne Hatfield, a company spokeswoman. "While the process to conduct plumbing repairs and store upgrades are still ongoing, our goal is to begin serving customers by late October or Early November."

Hatfield said the store is ready to begin its hiring process.

 "This includes communicating with associates that have transferred to surrounding area stores and encouraging all others interested in exploring employment opportunities with Walmart to also apply," Hatfield said. 

Four-hundred employees were displaced after the April announcement in that the Walmart would close for renovations and plumbing repairs.
