Walmart Renovating Stores In 6 States To Enhance Customer Service

Walmart Pickup

Walmart plans to spend millions remodeling and renovating 157 stores in six states for customer service innovations.

Stores in Texas, Florida, California, Indiana, Arizona and Pennsylvania will receive upgrades to expand customer-focused innovations such as online shopping, grocery pickup, grocery delivery, pickup towers, autonomous shelf scanners, fast unloaders and autonomous floor scrubbers.

Nationwide this fiscal year Walmart plans to add an additional 1,200 autonomous floor scrubbers, 300 autonomous shelf-scanners, 1,200 FAST unloaders and 900 Pickup Towers to stores across the country. Also, the company plans to expand Online Grocery Pickup to an additional 1,000 stores and add another 800 stores across the country.

Walmart Pickup Towers are 16-feet tall, high-tech vending machines capable of fulfilling a customer’s online order in less than a minute once they arrive at the store.

Autonomous Shelf Scanners use automation to scan shelves and help identify where in-stock levels are low, prices are wrong, or labels are missing. The scanners provide a real-time view of inventory in the store which can direct associates to the areas of the store that need the most attention.

A new system known as FAST unloader automatically scans and sorts items that come off trucks based on priority and department, allowing associates to spend less time unloading in the backroom and more time on the sales floor with customers.

The autonomous floor scrubber uses assisted autonomy technology to clean and scrub the concrete floors in stores.

Texas

In Texas, the company is spending $264 million to remodel 54 stores (list below).

“Our primary goal is to save time and money for our customers and there is no better place for shopping and convenience than Walmart,” Walmart Regional General Manager Uli Correa said of the improvements in Texas. “We’re very excited about rolling out improvements and innovations in 2019 that fit into our customers’ busy lifestyles and make shopping even easier.”

The company plans to expand the popular grocery pickup program to more than 74 stores across Texas by the end of the year. The company also recently introduced Walmart Voice Order. Walmart will add grocery delivery service to 84 stores.
