N.J.’s first Walmart has been remodeled to provide Turnersville customers with better way to shop

Walmart‘s first New Jersey store, which opened 31 years ago, has gotten a makeover.

Gloucester County residents got a first look at the newly remodeled Walmart Supercenter at 3501 Route 42, Turnersville, on Friday as the the store celebrated its “re-grand opening.”

A brief ceremony honoring associates and recognizing local fire and police departments with a $2,000 donation to each organization was held in the morning to commemorate the now-completed, and much-anticipated, project.

The remodel includes several department transformations that Turnersville store executives said will help customers save time.

“The Turnersville Walmart has a long history of serving customers and the community,” Candice Bailey, store manager, stated. “We still have seven associates who helped open the store back in 1991. And, since Day One, we’ve been focused on our associates, innovation, community service and helping customers save time and money.”

Customers will enjoy the following store improvements:

  • New pharmacy location: From its former location in the middle of the grocery department, the pharmacy has moved to the front of the store, so customers can get their prescriptions, vaccinations and other supplies in a more convenient fashion;
  • Improvements at checkout: To streamline checkout for customers, the store added a new associate-operated register lane;
  • Refreshed interior and exterior, including paint and signage for easier navigation through the store.

Walmart said it will continue to innovate to help customers save time and money by giving them the option to shop when, where and how they want, including through pickup, pharmacy curbside pickup, delivery and Walmart Pay, a touch-free way to pay.
