ROSEVILLE, Calif., Oct. 21, 2014 – A new Walmart is opening Wednesday, October 22, following a brief ribbon-cutting ceremony at 7:30 a.m. The new store is conveniently located at 1400 Lead Hill Blvd. and is open 6 a.m. to midnight, seven days a week. The store will provide Roseville 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 Roseville store for free, often as quickly as the same day.
The new store employs approximately 300 full- and part-time associates. Store manager Heidi Harman began her Walmart career in 2011 as a market asset protection manager.
“We’re excited to open our expanded store just in time for the holidays,” said Harman. “We have everything you need for your holiday gifts and gatherings.”
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 and local favorites for school lunches.
In addition to groceries, the store features quality, value-priced general merchandise, including electronics and seasonally relevant apparel. 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 Roseville 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. Roseville 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 of $8,000 in grants from Walmart to local community groups. Grant recipients include the Roseville Police Department, the Gathering Inn, Roseville High School, Safe Kids of Placer County, the Golden Empire Council of the Boy Scouts of America and the Placer County Food Bank.
“We couldn’t be more pleased to welcome this newly remodeled Walmart store to Roseville, creating new options for consumers and hundreds of good jobs for local residents,” said Mayor Susan Rohan. “Store management has done a great job hiring from within the community, and we’re happy to hear about the different local organizations the store is giving back to already."
Walmart is committed to investing $250 billion in products that support American manufacturing over the next 10 years. In California, Walmart buys products from Contadina Foods, a San Francisco-based manufacturer that produces tomato-based products.
Walmart is happy to be part of the Roseville community and is ready to celebrate with residents on Saturday, October 25. A Big Family Welcome will give customers a chance to meet Harman and enjoy fun family activities and free food samples while supplies last. Join the celebration from noon to 3 p.m.
