EVERETT, Wash., Sept. 3, 2017 – A new Walmart is opening Wednesday, September 10, following a brief ribbon-cutting ceremony at 7:30 a.m. The new store is conveniently located at 1605 SE. Everett Mall Way and is open 24 hours a day, seven days a week. The store will provide Everett residents with low prices on a broad assortment of merchandise and offer Walmart's free Site to Store program, enabling customers to choose from nearly a million additional online items that can be ordered on Walmart.com and picked up at the Everett store for free, often as quickly as the same day.
The new store employs approximately 200 full- and part-time associates. Store manager Chris Johnson began his Walmart career in 2001 as a cashier.
“We are so proud of this new store and are excited to open our doors,” said Johnson. “I hope the Everett community will come out on grand-opening day to join the celebration.”
Affordable Groceries to Meet All Your Needs
The new store offers fresh produce and a full line of groceries from all the leading brand names, including organic and natural selections. There is also a wide variety of meat and bakery selections, including breads and desserts.
In addition to groceries, the store features quality, value-priced general merchandise, including electronics and back-to-school supplies. In addition, customers can shop a broader assortment of items online at Walmart.com and then pay for these purchases with cash in all of Walmart U.S. stores and Walmart Neighborhood Markets, including the new Everett store.
The pharmacy offers a full range of products and services. Pharmacy team members can answer product and prescription questions and customers can ask about health and wellness solutions. Everett residents can easily transfer prescriptions and order refills on the go with the Walmart mobile app for iPhone and Android.
The grand-opening celebration includes presentations in grants from Walmart to local community groups.
In addition to the grants given as part of the grand opening, the new store will further Walmart’s pledge to fight hunger in America. As part of Walmart’s and the Walmart Foundation’s $2 billion commitment to fight hunger through 2015, Walmart stores in Washington donated approximately 10.4 million pounds of food, in fiscal year 2014, or the equivalent of 8.6 million meals. Additionally, Walmart and the Walmart Foundation gave more than $19.5 million in fiscal year 2014 in Washington alone.
