Walmart Opens Two New Neighborhood Markets, Testing Valuable Changes

Since 1998, Walmart customers have looked to the convenience of Neighborhood Markets to get what they need. A smaller size meets a stellar assortment, creating a store that places the community at its very center. And that’s not changing.

In fact, Walmart recently committed to opening or converting more than 150 stores in the next five years – with the Neighborhood Market format set to benefit. Two new stores, one in the Dune Lakes area of Santa Rosa Beach, Florida, the other in the Vine City neighborhood of Atlanta, are the first to open under the new initiative.

The stores aren’t just new or remodeled. They’re also bigger. With 57,000 square feet of salesfloor and pickup and delivery space, the Dune Lakes and Vine City stores will have a footprint that’s about 17,000 square feet larger than the average Neighborhood Market. The expanded space will allow us to sharpen our focus on value, speed and convenience.

Let’s take a look at what these changes will mean in stores:

Value

With the larger layout, we can offer a broader assortment across the entire store. Customers will see the biggest gains in our Fresh departments. There will be more to choose from in bakery, produce, meat and dairy. Plus, the expanded service deli will offer more hot case options.
