Walmart Debuts C-store Concept

walmartWalmart To Go arrives in Arkansas with low prices and gasoline service.

Wal-Mart Stores Inc. has rolled out its Walmart To Go convenience store concept in its home state of Arkansas.

The first location debuted Wednesday, March 19 at 1300 S. Walton Blvd. in Benton, Ark., Arkansas Business Online reported.    

The store measures 2,500 square-feet, making it much smaller than the company’s small-format Neighborhood Market grocery stores. The store will sell Walmart-branded gasoline and regular convenience store merchandises at the same everyday low prices found at Walmart stores.

In addition, Walmart is testing a grocery delivery service under the name WalmartToGo.com.

Deisha Barnett, the senior director of corporate communications for Walmart told Arkansas Business Online that the c-store concept was a one-off.  “We’re not planning any more across the country.”
