Walmart format debuts in Denver
July 9th, 2012
DENVER – Walmart has opened five Neighborhood Markets in the Denver area while the format has also made its debut in Georgia and Wisconsin.
The Colorado stores all occupy former Albertsons locations in Denver, Arvada, Centennial and Littleton, and they employ about 400 associates. The new Denver-area Neighborhood Markets range in size from 48,000 to 57,000 square feet, and each features a self-serve deli, fresh produce, meat, cheese, bakery and prepared food. They also offer a full line of groceries, including frozen food, dairy and organic items as well as local favorites.
Like the Denver outlets, the new stores in Lawrenceville, Ga., and Wauwatosa, Wis., feature full pharmacies as well as a full selection of health and beauty aids and a substantial general merchandise offering that includes stationery, paper goods, pet products and hardware.
All of the stores will be open 24 hours a day, seven days a week, and offer Walmart’s Site-to-Store service, which enables customers to order products online and pick them up at a Walmart of their choice. The service is a regular feature at Walmart Supercenters and discount stores, but is not yet a typical offering at most Neighborhood Markets.
