Walmart Supercenter Remodel Complete
Lincoln residents got their first look at the newly-remodeled Walmart Supercenter at 8700 Andermatt Drive on June 29, as the much-anticipated project was completed. A grand reopening ribbon-cutting was held that morning with the Lincoln Chamber of Commerce to mark the occasion.
Headlining the remodel is the installation of a Pickup Tower. Pickup Towers are 16 feet tall and function like high-tech vending machines, capable of fulfilling a customer’s online order in less than a minute. To use the tower, customers simply choose from millions of items available on Walmart.com and select the Pickup option at checkout. When the item arrives at the local store, an associate loads it into the Pickup Tower and the customer retrieves it by scanning a bar code sent to their smartphone.
Customers will also enjoy many other store improvements: State-of-the-art electronics department with interactive displays, addition of a Mother’s Room, refreshed pharmacy with new consultation room, new tool department with a new look and added variety of tools, self-checkouts at the front of the store to save customers time, updated apparel departments with new signage and fitting rooms, improved produce department layout to better reflect customer shopping patterns, and a new layout and larger assortment in the Home department.
“We’re always looking for ways to make our customers’ lives easier,” said Store Manager Doug Hank. “We’re excited for everyone to come see how we are helping give time back to our customers with a new and improved shopping experience.”
