New departments include bakery & deli, fresh meat, organic/natural selections, prepared meals, Primo water refill station and fabrics.

Walmart is a true community partner,said Scott Smith, executive director of the Cerritos Regional Chamber of Commerce. Not only do they support the local economy with jobs, but they support the business community through their work with the One-Stop Shopping Convenience
The grand-opening celebration will also include the presentation of $9,800 in grants from Walmart and the Walmart Foundation to local community groups including 1st CEB Adoption Committee, Cerritos Chamber of Commerce, Cerritos Optimist Club, Community Family Guidance Center, Los Cerritos Foundation, Haskell Middle School and Su Casa.


More Store, More Jobs
The store employs approximately 311 full- and part-time associates, including approximately 55 positions created by the expansion. Store manager Tammy Cannon began her Walmart career in 1989 as an hourly associate as a part-time cashier at a store in Maldon, Mo. “We are so excited to share our newly expanded store with the Cerritos community,” said Cannon. “We think customers will be pleased with our expanded store with a new bakery, deli and fresh meats, as well as with the savings we offer on our full line of groceries and merchandise. On grand-opening day, we will be offering product samples and giveaways, and we invite everyone to stop in and see the new store.”
