BENTONVILLE, AR - The Neighborhood Market format seems to be working well for Walmart, as evidenced by recent expansions. Two new stores have opened in the Dune Lakes area of Santa Rosa Beach, Florida, and the Vine City neighborhood of Atlanta, Georgia. The expansion is part of Walmart’s initiative to convert over 150 stores to the Neighborhood Market format over the next five years.

“The stores aren’t just new or remodeled. They’re also bigger,” Kyle Kinnard, Senior Vice President of Neighborhood Markets, wrote in an announcement from the company. “With 57,000 square feet of sales floor 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.”

With the larger layout of a Neighborhood Market store, Walmart will be able to offer a broader assortment. Shoppers will see the biggest gains in the fresh departments, the announcement noted, with more to choose from in bakery, meat, dairy, and more. Plus, the expanded service deli will offer more hot case options.

The stores also feature wider aisles to give customers more room to shop. Additionally, Walmart has allotted more space for pickup and delivery orders in these new stores. The larger space includes dedicated room for refrigerated goods, so associates can keep orders moving at an even faster pace.

“As we remodel, convert, and build new stores, we are being thoughtful about how to make our Neighborhood Markets right-sized for each community,” Kinnard concluded. “We continually evaluate all our stores to make sure they have the right assortment and services to match our customers’ expectations.”
