Staff Photo: Sue Ann Kuhn-Smith Newton County resident Pierce Burton helps his mom shop on opening day of the new Walmart Supercenter on Salem Road. The 170,000 square foot store is near the Rockdale County line and officials hope it will help keep tax dollars in Newton that are currently lost to Rockdale. The store is convenient for citizens of west Newton and east Rockdale. The store will employ about 280 and includes a food center with a bakery, deli, a Subway, hair salon and optical center.
