WalMart to Open in Hawaiian Gardens

By Brian Hews



On the heels of re-opening the WalMart in Cerritos, the company announced this past Wednesday that it will opening a Neighborhood Store in Hawaiian Gardens.


The approximately 43,000 square foot store will fill a retail space that has been vacant for a few years in a shopping center at the intersection of Carson Street and Norwalk Boulevard. The store will be located at 12120 Carson Street.


The store will provide a new option for fresh and affordable groceries, as well as an assortment of everyday goods. Walmart brings new tax revenue to the cities where it operates, as well as quality jobs with competitive benefits. The new store will bring approximately 65 new job opportunities to the community.


Walmart operates four Neighborhood Markets in Los Angeles County in Downey, Bell Gardens, Altadena and Panorama City. First opened in 1998, there are now more than 250 Walmart Neighborhood Markets nationwide.


The new WalMart will be a nice compliment o the healthier foods initiative Activate Hawaiian Gardens.


In 2011, Walmart established its healthier food initiative designed to make food healthier and healthier food more affordable. During the first two years of Walmart’s healthier food initiative, the company helped make it easier for customers to create healthier diets and, ultimately, live healthier lives by saving customers $2.3 billion on fresh fruits and vegetables; developing and launching a front-of-package icon which will appear on more than 1,300 Walmart Great Value and Marketside items as well as fresh and packaged fruits and vegetables; reducing salt and sugars in its private brand and national food brands.
