Walmart Plans to Open New Stores in Texas

Monday, July 16th, 2018

Target isn’t the only major retailer rolling out smaller format stores. After opening a few locations of what has been dubbed “Walmart Fuel Stations,” Walmart is expanding its convenience store test to include more locations in Texas this year, according to a report by Dallas Business Journal.

Anne Hatfield, Director of Communications, Walmart“It’s another piece of our efforts with online deliveries and curbside pickup towers. It’s all about choices, It is another way Walmart is offering our customers choice and convenience that save time,” said Anne Hatfield, Walmart’s Director of Communications for Texas. “We often test new services and concepts in Dallas-Fort Worth. Dallas is a great market for us and a very important market.”

Last week, Walmart opened a 2,900-square-foot convenience store in Plano, Texas, upping its tally of locations, which also includes an Arkansas-based and a Crowley, Texas-based c-store location. The retailer also plans to open three additional locations in Arlington, Lake Worth, and The Colony, Texas, as well as Avon, Ohio, later this year.

All locations feature a variety of deli items, lunch items, snacks, doughnuts, fruits, and coffee stations and currently exist in Walmart Supercenter parking lots that didn’t already have gasoline pumps. Hatfield noted that no freestanding locations are planned for now as the c-stores are still in the testing stages.

Will Walmart bring its c-store format nationwide as a strategy to best other grocery retailers? Deli Market News will continue to keep you looped in on the latest developments affecting our industry.
