Walmart celebrates grand reopening

Store manager, Mike King addresses the crowd of associates and community members who attended the Walmart grand reopening on Friday.

Salem residents can now get a first look at the newly remodeled Walmart Supercenter at 1309 E Hackberry Street, as the much-anticipated project is now complete. A grand reopening ribbon-cutting ceremony took place Friday, July 16.  Salem Mayor Justin Green, sheriff Brent Miller and fire chief Tom Day were in attendance.  The remodel includes several department transformations, and the expansion of innovations that will help customers save time. The upgrades also complement the measures the company has taken in its U.S. stores to help protect associates and customers from the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic.
