SALT LAKE CITY (ABC 4 News) - A controversial Walmart store opened in Sugar House on Friday.

Construction began on the site just over a year ago.

Its critics said the old K-mart site should have become something more "community-friendly."

Shoppers who visited the store on Friday disagreed, saying the new Walmart is a great addition.
