Walmart investing $160 million in store upgrades in New York, New Jersey

BY Marianne Wilson

Walmart continues to roll out improvements and innovations to its vast network of stores.

The retail giant expects to spend an estimated $64 million this year in New York through the remodeling of 13 stores. An estimated $96 million investment is earmarked for neighboring New Jersey, where Walmart will remodel 11 locations, expand one store and relocate another. (A list of store locations are at end of the article.)

The investments include the launch and continued expansion of several customer-focused innovations across the two states, including grocery pickup and grocery delivery. Walmart is also adding more pickup towers (shoppers can retrieve online orders at the 16-feet tall, high-tech vending machines) and automated shelf scanners that check shelves for inventory and pricing accuracy.
