DULLES, VA, June 22, 2015 – A new Walmart is opening Wednesday, July 1, following a brief ribbon-cutting ceremony at 7:30 a.m. The new store is conveniently located at Route 50 and Loudoun County Parkway and is open 24 hours a day, seven days a week. The store will provide South Riding residents with low prices on a broad assortment of groceries and merchandise, along with a full service pharmacy. Walmart is making shopping more convenient than ever as local residents can shop for more than a million additional items online on Walmart.com and pick them up at the new South Riding Walmart store for free, often as quickly as the same day.

The new store employs approximately 300 full- and part-time associates. Store manager Daoud Noori began his Walmart career in 2003 as a department manager.
 
“Today is a new beginning for our local community to save money and live better,” said store manager Daoud Noori.

Fresh, Affordable Produce, Meat and Groceries
South Riding customers will find meal and entertaining essentials, fresh produce and a full line of groceries from leading brand names, including organic selections. By working with growers, Walmart is able to provide farm-grown quality produce at added convenience and low prices.
                                                               
Convenient Local Pharmacy and General Merchandise
In addition to groceries, the store features quality, value-priced general merchandise, including electronics, furniture, home decor, automotive, sporting goods, home improvement and more.

Community Giving
The grand-opening celebration includes presentations of $7,000 in grants from Walmart to local community groups including Boy Scouts of America, Dulles South Food Pantry, Freedom High School and Kids R First.

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 Virginia donated approximately 21.9 million pounds of food, in fiscal year 2014, or the equivalent of 18.3 million meals. Additionally, Walmart and the Walmart Foundation gave more than $40.1 million in fiscal year 2014 in Virginia alone.
