Customers visiting the Glenville, New York Walmart Supercenter store will discover some changes have been made as the store has undergone a remodel focused on being a more customer-centric store.
New interactive features include a reconfigured layout, check-out improvements and refreshed signage for easier navigation, according to a press release.
New touch points located throughout the store help to communicate to customers the range of products and services Walmart offers online through the use of QR codes and digital screens. For example, in Walmart’s pets area, a customer may scan the QR code to find additional dog bed options, learn about Walmart’s pet insurance service options or have a 20-pound bag of kibble delivered to their door.
“We’re thrilled to introduce these store upgrades, which will enable our customers to save both time and money,” store manager Marvin Massey Jr. said in the release. “We believe that our customers will love the fresh new look and the feel of the store. These renovations showcase our dedication to our community and our unyielding commitment to providing our customers with an exceptional shopping experience.”
As part of the store’s revamp the retailer presented $10,000 in grants to local nonprofits. The Marine Toys for Tots Foundation and the Glenville Hill Fire District No. 8 each received a $5,000 grant.
One of the changes to the store is a mural that reflects the image of Glen Sander’s Mansion, which retains the character of the 1700s, the Empire State Aerosciences Museum, which strives to educate, entertain and excite with experiences in air and space, and Collins Park on the riverfront.
This is part of Walmart’s Community Mural Program, the largest public-facing art installation celebrating communities across America.
