A remodeled South Boston Walmart Supercenter and a new online Grocery Pickup service were unveiled Friday in a ribbon-cutting ceremony, complete with the presentation of colors by the Halifax County High School JROTC and the singing of the National Anthem.
Six employees, each of whom has worked with the South Boston Walmart store since it opened in October 1989, cut the ribbon along with Paul Walker, store manager.
The Walmart Foundation also presented donations of $500 each to five non-profit groups after the ribbon-cutting, including the Halifax County Cancer Association, Racing For Heroes, Ward Burton Wildlife Foundation, Jane Jones Food Pantry at Main Street United Methodist Church and Halifax County-South Boston Museum of Fine Arts and History.
Customers can use the Walmart Grocery App and choose a pickup or delivery time.
Customers can order before 1 p.m. for same-day pickup, and Walmart employees will load their cars when customers arrive at a designated space in front of the store.
Other improvements include new signage for easier store navigation using the Walmart App, a new mother’s room located in the back of the store, and updates to the produce and deli departments.
