Former University of South Carolina running back Marcus Lattimore will sign autographs and meet fans from 4-6 p.m. Wednesday at the grand opening of the Walmart Neighborhood Market at 1635 Red Bank Road.

Lattimore enjoyed a stellar career at South Carolina but suffered a torn knee ligament in 2011 and then a catastrophic knee injury in 2012. He later declared for the 2013 NFL Draft and was selected in the fourth round by the San Francisco 49ers. He was never able to play for the 49ers and announced his retirement in 2014.
