New and existing Walmart stores will adopt elements of the retailer’s recently introduced “fresh and friendly” prototype for its Neighborhood Market concept.
"We've created a more modern look and feel. We've changed the colors. We're highlighting our services," Julie Murphy, EVP of Neighborhood Markets, said during a media tour of the new store Thursday. "You'll see Pick-up, you'll see pharmacy, and you'll see fresh food."
A vestibule entrance featuring seasonal produce is one new element. Produce can also be found in the store where a "fresh angle" layout features fruits and vegetables arranged on low-slung tables that are positioned at an angle.
