Walmart to expand

Expanding grocery selection, eliminating tire and lube service

l

By the end of the year, Trail will have another full-service grocery store in town.

The Silver City’s Walmart location is currently slated for expansion, turning it into a Walmart Supercentre, creating a one-stop shop for customers.

“In Trail right now, there is a combination of dry food (in the grocery section) and some freezer and refrigerated sections,” said Alex Roberton, director of corporate affairs with Walmart Canada.

“The existing offerings will grow and be expanded, offering more dry foods, more frozen and more refrigerated, and we will be adding fruits and vegetables, meat and fish. You can do your full grocery shopping there.

“Also, we will be closing the tire and lube service at (the Trail location).”

There is no exact date set or specific details about the renovations released, but Roberton says the project will be completed in the very near future.

“I don’t have any details on what is going to happen to the store from a construction standpoint, but I can tell you that it will be done this year,” he said.

“There are no other specific changes (to the garden centre or automotive centre) planned right now.

“It is one of 29 Supercentre projects that we have planned to have completed by the end of the fiscal year, which is Jan. 30, 2016.”

Last year, Walmart Canada turned 35 locations into Supercentres with full grocery stock.
