The Ormond Beach Walmart was one of 40 statewide stores going through a remodel this year.
After almost 19 weeks of remodeling, the Ormond Beach Walmart inaugurated their revamped store with a ribbon-cutting morning ceremony on July 14.
The store now features a larger electronics section, Scan-and-Go stations with conveyer belts for easier personal check-out and eco-friendly polished concrete floors. Customers will also be able to order groceries online and pick them up in-store at a designated time in the store’s new carport where a Walmart associate will bring them out at no extra cost. The item pickup station was also moved to the front of the store for customer convenience.
Some other features of the remodeled store include larger signs, an expanded dairy isle and relocation of certain departments to accommodate the new additions.
On behalf of Walmart, Store Manager Mark Rogers also gave out six $1,000 checks to local non-profits, including the Boys and Girls Club and the Junior League of Daytona Beach.
In addition, he announced a partnership between the store and the Ormond Beach Police Department. Walmart’s “Shop with a Cop” will partner an in-need child with an OBPD officer and hand them a $100 gift card to use in-store during the holiday season.
The Ormond Beach Walmart was one of 40 stores in Florida undergoing a renovation this year as part of the company’s $450 million investment in the state. As part of that investment, Walmart is also planning to open 9 new stores in Florida and hire an estimated 2,750 workers within the next year.
