Hands-on Electronics Experience Headlines Elk Grove Walmart Remodel
Community Invited to Grand Reopening Celebration Saturday, May 27, 11 a.m. to 5 p.m.
ELK GROVE, Calif. (May 25, 2017) – Customers of the newly remodeled Walmart at 8465 Elk Grove Blvd. now have the opportunity to get more hands-on with the latest technology.
As part of a recently completed remodel, the store features Walmart’s new, state-of-the-art electronics department that allows customers to try laptops, tablets and other technology on display prior to purchase. The baby department was redesigned with strollers at floor level and easier access to everyday essentials like formula. Other highlights include a Walmart Pickup at the front of the store and larger signage throughout for ease of navigation.
“This remodel project, along with our everyday low prices, represents our continued commitment to our customers,” said Store Manager Amanda McPherson. “We’re always looking for ways to make our customers’ lives easier, and now we’re providing a more convenient shopping experience.”
Residents are invited to a grand reopening celebration, scheduled for 11 a.m. to 5 p.m. Saturday, May 27. The Walmart will host fun events for the whole family, and samples and giveaways will be available, while supplies last.
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.
