Walmart celebrates grand reopening

Comments

Employees and management gathered for the ribbon cutting at the grand reopening ceremony for Estevan's Walmart, which is now a supercentre.

The Estevan Walmart celebrated its grand reopening as a supercentre with activities on January 24 and 25.

The formal ceremony took place on the 24th, with speeches from community leaders and Walmart representatives, and a ribbon cutting. A block party on the 25th featured face-painting, live music, refreshments and samples.

“We have worked hard to ensure all of our customers will enjoy the changes to the store, which now includes fresh food,” said store manager Luke Harris. “We have enhanced the areas customers told us we should, and we’re so excited to unveil the results of many months of hard work.”

The Estevan Walmart is one of 37 supercentre projects planned for the 2013-14 fiscal year, which ends on January 31. The 37 projects include new stores, and the expansion, renovation or relocation of existing stores.

Estevan's Walmart has been at its present location, adjacent to Kensington Avenue, since January of 2007.

The supercentre will offer a full line of groceries, including baked goods, fresh produce, a deli, and meat and dairy products, to go along with the other existing products and services.

Aisles have directional signage, and there will be a bright interior colour palette.

The conversion to a supercentre has resulted in 20 new jobs, which means that 140 people now work at the Estevan Walmart. The size of the store remains at 101,000 square feet.
