SACHSE, Texas, July 16, 2014 – A new Walmart is opening Wednesday, July 16, following a brief ribbon-cutting ceremony at 8 a.m. The new store is conveniently located at 8015 Woodbridge Parkway and is open 24 hours a day, seven days a week. The store will provide Sachse residents with low prices on a broad assortment of merchandise and offer Walmart's free Site to Store program, enabling customers to choose from nearly a million additional online items that can be ordered on Walmart.com and picked up at the Sachse store for free, often as quickly as the same day.
The new store employs approximately 300 full- and part-time associates. Store manager Mustafa Tovi began his Walmart career in 1999 as an hourly associate in the hardware department.
“We are excited to open the doors and invite the community to see the new store,” said Tovi. “All of the associates have worked hard to make grand-opening day a success.”
Affordable Groceries to Meet All Your Needs
The new store offers fresh produce and a full line of groceries from all the leading brand names, including organic and natural selections. There is also a wide variety of meat for your summer grilling needs and bakery selections, including fresh bread and desserts. The Sachse store also offers beer and wine in the grocery section.
In addition to groceries, the store features quality, value-priced general merchandise, including electronics and pool toys. In addition, customers can shop a broader assortment of items online at Walmart.com and then pay for these purchases with cash in all of Walmart U.S. stores and Walmart Neighborhood Markets, including the new Sachse store.
The pharmacy offers a full range of products and services. Pharmacy team members can answer product and prescription questions and customers can ask about health and wellness solutions. Sachse residents can easily transfer prescriptions and order refills on the go with the Walmart mobile app for iPhone and Android.
“We continue to see growth in our population and in economic development in Sachse and we are excited for this new Walmart to open its doors,” said Mike Felix, Mayor of Sachse. “With the way Sachse is growing, we need access to additional basic services within our city limits. And, Walmart is bringing steady jobs and additional tax revenue that will help fund the services demanded by the growing population of our great city. This new Walmart is a welcome addition to the community.”
The grand-opening celebration includes presentations of $9,200 in grants from Walmart and the Walmart Foundation to local community groups.
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 Texas donated approximately 59 million pounds of food, in fiscal year 2014, or the equivalent of 49.2 million meals. Additionally, Walmart and the Walmart Foundation gave more than $110.8 million in fiscal year 2014 in Texas alone.
