Buena Vista Rd. Walmart to get a facelift

COLUMBUS, GA (WTVM) - Big things are happening at an old staple. Walmart, located at 4701 Buena Vista Road, will be getting a need face lift.

Officials tell News Leader 9, the store will receive a full remodel from the inside out and will represent the chain's current design and customer experience.

We're told the new store will have a clean, open, and bright look. From wider aisles, low-profile shelving, to easy-to-read signs to help customers find the products they need.

"We are excited to bring an improved shopping experience to our customers," said Store Manager Raymond Simpson. "We listened to our customers and are redesigning the store to make shopping at Walmart even easier," he added.

The store will remain open during the renovations. The majority of construction and moving will be completed during the overnight hours.  The project is expected to be completed by mid-June.

To help with the remodel, the Columbus Walmart is hiring about 20 temporary associates.
