It’s a move that could bring more jobs to Bend. The Wal-Mart store in Bend is hoping to do a major expansion that they say would add about 85 jobs.  The store at Pinebrook Boulevard is asking the City of Bend for a permit to add a grocery, bakery and other departments to that site. If approved, the store would grow from 122,000 square feet to 161,000 square feet. That store opened in 1994. This past July, representatives from Wal-Mart held a community meeting to unveil their plans.
