Walmart holds grand opening after renovation

September 17, 2010

The Hagerstown Walmart at 17850 Garland Groh Blvd. held a grand reopening Friday.

The event was held to give local shoppers a glimpse of the results of a three-month remodeling project, the company said in a prepared release.

Changes include a new layout, wider aisles, low-profile shelving, a bright interior paint scheme, enhanced lighting and easy-to-read signage, according to the release.

"We listened to our customers and have redesigned the store to make shopping at Walmart even easier," store manager Steven James said in the release.

The store's wider aisles will contain no product displays, and the departments that customers shop most frequently have been aligned, making it quicker to purchase everyday items, the release said.

Walmart has combined the Site-to-Store pick-up location and photo lab into a single area at the rear of the store, according to the release.

The store has an expanded electronics department and a new department called Celebration Station, which features party supplies, greeting cards, balloons, helium tanks, cake supplies and gift wrap, the release said.
