In a bid to expand its already significant presence, Walmart is planning a significant escalation in its reach across the U.S. The retail company’s plans include the construction or conversion of over 150 large-scale stores within the next half-decade. The new stores will be predominantly new establishments, although some will be upgrades from smaller locations to Supercenters, which offer a wide variety of groceries and products.
Walmart opted to keep the locations and cost of these new stores under wraps. As it stands, the company boasts over 4,600 stores nationwide, with almost 600 Sam’s Club warehouses in its portfolio.
