The newly remodeled Newport Walmart store was celebrated with a ribbon-cutting ceremony on Friday, April 14. Cutting the ribbon are three employees who have worked at the store since it first opened 30 years ago — in January 1993. Also during Friday’s ceremony, Walmart made community contributions to the Oregon Coast Aquarium ($2,000), the Lincoln County Children’s Advocacy Center ($2,000), Friends of Newport Parks and Recreation ($2,000) and the Lincoln County School District ($2,350).
