Walmart has signed a lease with VCU to open a store on campus of the university somewhere between late 2014 and early 2015.
The 4,100 square foot is a part of a Walmart pilot program called “Walmart on Campus.” The program spawned from Walmart’s idea to open smaller format stores on college campus to offer more convenient options for students.
The VCU Walmart will be located on the first floor of 912 West Grace Street, a building owned by VCU that is still in the process of being built. The building will also hold classrooms and offices.
The store will employ around 10 associates, according to Walmart.
