Walmart broke ground Friday on a supercenter in Sweetwater, Tenn.

The store, going up at Highways 11 and 68, will create about 300 jobs, officials said.

"This store will be a great convenience for the residents of Sweetwater," said Sweetwater Mayor Doyle Lowe.

Walmart Market Manager Jackie Chapman said communities like Sweetwater recognize the value in bringing Walmart to their neighborhoods.
