Walmart’s new Neighborhood Market in West Hartford’s Bishop’s Corner is holding its grand opening today. Have you stopped by? If so, what did you think?
Wal-Mart’s newest Neighborhood Market holds a grand opening on Wednesday, Feb. 20 in West Hartford. The 59,000-square-foot, full-service grocery store, in Bishop’s Corner (behind Marshalls), is the company’s first Northeast location.
Doors open with a ribbon-cutting ceremony at 7:30 a.m. and there will be entertainment, free product samples and giveaways throughout the day.
The new store, which occupies the former site of Adam’s Supermarket at 333 N. Main St., features a bakery, deli, prepared foods, fresh produce, frozen foods, meat and dairy and health and wellness departments, along with a pharmacy and general merchandise section with stationery, paper goods and household and pet supplies.
“We are very pleased to have Walmart make this investment in our community,” said West Hartford town manager, Ron Van Winkle, in a press release. “This new venture of a “Walmart Neighborhood Market” is a welcome concept and we look forward to their success. The facility they are occupying has been empty for many years and having that store put back into use is a boom for our local economy, the shoppers and their employees.”
The store will also offer Site-to-Store, a service that allows customers to ship online orders from www.walmart.com free to any Walmart store for pickup and the Pay with Cash program, which allows customers to order online (without a credit card) at Walmart.com and pay for the items with cash in-store.
Regular store hours are 6 a.m. to 11 p.m, seven days a week. Information: 860-509-1705 or walmart.com.
