Walmart on Wednesday announced it plans to spend an estimated $96 million this year on new technologies and upgrades to stores throughout New Jersey.
This is a huge investment that entails the remodeling, relocation or expansion of 13 stores in the Garden State, all designed to better serve customers by creating a more convenient shopping experience, Walmart said.
“Walmart is strongly committed to enhancing the overall shopping experience in New Jersey,” said Glen Spencer, Walmart’s regional general manager for New Jersey. “We’re investing millions in technology and innovations, as well as in our people. This will significantly benefit our customers, whether they’re shopping in-store or online.”
Specifically, here is what the company has planned for this year in New Jersey: 11 store remodels encompassing locations in Brick, Millville, Hammonton, Hackettstown, Clinton, Piscataway, Freehold, Williamstown, Somerdale, Watchung and Rockaway; free grocery pickup service added to seven stores; grocery delivery coming to nine stores; construction of nine Walmart pickup towers; six stores will receive automated floor scrubbers; and 15 stores will receive a new automated delivery truck unloader.
