Written By

Walmart Canada has announced a number of expansion projects for the year ahead. The retailer’s plans include distribution centre projects, construction of new stores, and expansion, remodelling or relocation of existing Walmart stores in Canada.

The work represents an investment of more than $450 million in the Canadian economy, and is expected to generate more than 7,000 store, trade and construction jobs. “This year, we are ramping up our focus on lowering prices and helping customers lower their cost of living, as we continue to bring our supercentre format to more Canadians,” said Shelley Broader, president and CEO of Walmart Canada.

The retailer will also introduce the supercentre format to locations in the Maritimes this year. Walmart’s supercentres carries close to 100,000 different products ranging from clothing and home decor to electronics and grocery as well as specialty services such as pharmacies and garden centres. The locations for specific store and distribution centre projects will be announced as project details are finalised.
