“Just in time for back to school, our store provides easy meals perfect for lunchtime,” said store manager Dan Tucker. “We look forward to opening and providing area residents with Walmart’s everyday low prices.”

Along with a stocked grocery section, customers will also find a full-service deli and in-store bakery offering custom cakes and more. A drive-thru pharmacy window makes prescription drop off and pick up quick and easy.

There will be special welcome celebration on Saturday, August 15. Richmonders are invited to ‘A Big Family Welcome,’ which will give customers a chance to enjoy fun family activities and free food samples while supplies last. Join the celebration at 5221 Brook Road from noon to 3 p.m.
