Walmart to receive new look inside and outThe new design is based on feedback from customers and will feature a clean, open and bright new look in the store with higher-profile shelving, bright interior paint scheme and lighting, and easy-to-read signage to help customers find the products they need.
Alexandria Walmart, located at 4611 Highway 29 South, recently began an extensive renovation.
The store will receive a full remodel from the inside out and will represent the latest in Walmart's store design and customer experience.
The new design is based on feedback from customers and will feature a clean, open and bright new look in the store with higher-profile shelving, bright interior paint scheme and lighting, and easy-to-read signage to help customers find the products they need.
“We are excited to bring an improved shopping experience to our customers,” said store manager Chris Ford. “We listened to our customers and are redesigning the store to make shopping at Walmart even easier.”
Every department of the store will be updated including all new shelving, signing, flooring and product assortment. The store will also feature a new layout designed to make shopping for everyday items easier and faster by aligning the products customers purchase the most.
The store will remain open during the renovations, including all departments and services. Maps of the store layout will be available at the entrance and directional signage will be located throughout the store. The majority of construction and moving will be completed during the overnight hours to make shopping easier for customers.
The remodel, which began on March 6, is expected to be completed this May.
Some of the new features of the remodeled Alexandria Walmart:
Improved customer service.
Expanded electronics department (customers can enjoy a more interactive and hands-on experience to test new technology with interactive displays for hi-definition Blu-ray, video gaming and portable electronics).
The Alexandria store currently employs approximately 400 people, the majority of which are full-time positions.
29 associates have worked for this Walmart for 20 years, since it opened in 1991.
The Alexandria Walmart will hold a Remodel Grand Opening in May when all renovations are complete.
