Victorville, Calif. – (July 13, 2018) – Victorville residents got their first look at the newly remodeled Walmart Supercenter at 11896 Amargosa Rd. on Friday, July 13, as the much-anticipated project was completed.
A grand reopening celebration was held at the store this morning complete with a ribbon cutting and grant presentations to various community groups. Headlining the remodel is the launch of the new Walmart Online Grocery Pickup service.
Online Grocery Pickup is a free service that enables customers to order groceries online and pick them up at their local Walmart store without even leaving their cars. The service features 40,000 items with more than 90 percent of customers choosing to add fresh meat, dairy or produce to their baskets. Other top items selected by grocery pickup shoppers include after-school snacks, diapers and large dog food bags. All items are priced at the same low prices customers find in their local Walmart store.
Victorville customers will also enjoy the following store improvements:
- State-of-the-art electronics department with interactive displays that allow customers to try
- laptops, tablets, mobile phones and more before purchase
- Expanded home and apparel departments with a new layout and broader assortment
- Improved layout and lighting in produce and bakery departments
- A refreshed Walmart MoneyCenter
- A larger assortment of industrial and power tools in hardware
- A refreshed cosmetics area
- Newly polished concrete floors throughout store
“This remodel was about more than a fresh coat of paint,” said Victorville Co-Store Manager Crystal Bohn. “It was about investing in ways for our customers to save time and money. Grocery shopping, especially for busy families with kids, used to take a couple of hours on the weekend. Now, it’s a matter of a few clicks and one of our associates bringing the order out to their vehicle.”
In mid-April, Walmart announced it expects to spend an estimated $145 million over the next year in California through the opening and remodeling of more than 30 stores as well as the rollout of several in-store and online innovations designed to help busy customers save time and money.
At Walmart, associates have access to competitive wages, affordable benefits, and the chance to build a career. More than 75 percent of store management teams started as hourly associates and 40 percent of those promotions went to associates within the first year of their employment.
