RINCON - The Walmart Supercenter remodel at 434 S. Columbia Ave. is complete – and, in addition to the physical changes inside, customers now have access to online grocery pickup.
For the first time, Rincon residents will be able to order Walmart groceries online and pick them up without ever having to unbuckle their seatbelts.
Customers select from up to 40,000 online grocery items, diapers, dog food and more, and choose the best time to pick up them up.
A Walmart personal shopper loads the groceries into your car when you arrive – all at no additional cost.
Customers can enter their online grocery orders at once or over the course of a week, and same-day pickup is available if placed by 10 a.m.
“This remodel was about more than a fresh coat of paint,” Store Manager Mark Payne said. “It was about investing in ways for Rincon customers to save time and money. Grocery shopping, especially for busy families with kids, used to take a couple of hours on the weekend. Now, it’s a matter of a few clicks and one of our associates bringing the order out to their vehicle.”
Inside, the remodeled pharmacy offers a full range of products, immunizations and services.
The electronics, housewares, customer service center and Money Services departments have been improved, and Walmart pickup has been relocated to the front of the store.
Shopping is easier than ever as Rincon residents can shop millions of items on Walmart.com, many of which can be shipped for free to any Walmart store through Walmart Pickup.
Area residents were invited to celebrate these new features at a grand reopening event that took place on Saturday and Sunday.
The Rincon Walmart Supercenter hosted fun events for the whole family, and samples and giveaways were available.
At Walmart, associates have access to competitive wages, affordable benefits, and the chance to build a career.
More than 75 percent of store management teamsstarted as hourly associates, and 40 percent of those promotions went to associates within the first year of their employment.
Committed to the Community
Walmart is committed to serving Rincon and will support organizations through an approximate $2,000 investment in the coming months.
The commitment is woven into Walmart’s day-to-day business activities, creating value by accelerating job mobility, developing suppliers and small businesses, lowering the environmental footprint of its operations and more.
The remodeled store will also continue a commitment by Walmart and the Walmart Foundation to fight hunger in Warrenton and across the U.S. Walmart and the Walmart Foundation recently exceeded a $2 billion goal to fight hunger one year ahead of schedule and have donated more than 1.5 billion pounds of food to those in need across the country.
