New York’s first Walmart Neighborhood Market helds its grand opening on Hempstead Turnpike in Levittown on July 12. The market differs from its other supermarkets by offering a smaller format and local fresh food to the community. It is approximately one-third the size of a traditional Walmart.
The market offers a wide range of products and services, including a self-serve deli and a bakery, and a pharmacy in which team members can answer product and prescription questions while offering health and wellness solutions.
The first Walmart Neighborhood Market opened in 1998, and today there are approximately 250 Walmart Neighborhood Market stores nationwide, according to a company spokesperson.
On its first day, hundreds of residents packed the market to check out the new venue and do their grocery shopping.
