Walmart on Campus concept store to open at Arizona State University in May

ASU Walmart on Campus will be second to open in the country

Arizona State University will be home to the newest Walmart on Campus concept store, company officials announced today. Scheduled to open in May, the store is part of a pilot program designed to provide ASU students and faculty, as well as the surrounding neighborhood, more convenient access to affordable products. The first Walmart on Campus opened at the University of Arkansas in Fayetteville in January 2011.

“Walmart on Campus is a small-format test store that allows us to bring our low prices to students in a convenient location. With a full-service pharmacy, basic grocery, financial services and Site-to-Store, Arizona State will be able to enjoy many of the great services they would at our larger formats without leaving campus,” said store manager Mario Espino.

The ASU store, to be located in the Vista del Sol plaza, will also feature health and wellness services, general convenience items and merchandise tailored to the campus, all at Walmart’s everyday low prices. 

Arizona State University Walmart on Campus:

  • Approximately 10 associates
  • Approximately 5,093 square feet
  • Access to all Walmart health and wellness services, including a full-service pharmacy and signature $4 generic prescription program
  • Pharmacy will serve most insurance plans
  • Walmart financial services, including check cashing and bill pay
  • Walmart Site-to-Store delivery of select items purchased online at Walmart.com

Walmart currently operates approximately 3,100 Supercenter locations, along with about 230 Walmart Neighborhood Markets and 17 Walmart Express stores.
