Walmart is set to add 1,000 stores in the next 10 years

Walmart is poised to add a total of 1,500 new stores to its portfolio in the coming years.

The retailer announced the expansion in its earnings report, which was released Wednesday.

Walmart, which recently reported a quarterly profit of $3.9 billion, said the expansion will add more than 1,400 jobs and boost its global footprint by more than 300.

The company said it would hire 1,100 more workers this year and 2,500 more in 2019.

The plan also includes hiring 1,600 people in 2019 to staff stores in Europe and the U.K., and hiring another 3,400 workers this fall.

The growth comes after Walmart announced last year that it would open a total 3,600 new stores in 2018, bringing the total to nearly 12,000, which will mark a 35 percent increase over the previous year.
