LAKE ELSINORE – The much-anticipated Lake Elsinore Walmart Supercenter broke ground, Tuesday, Jan. 21, at 29260 Central Ave. in Lake Elsinore. The new store will replace the current Lake Elsinore Walmart store located at 31700 Grape St. and will add about 100 additional employees to staff the supercenter.
“We are tremendously excited to have officially broken ground today on the new and improved Lake Elsinore Walmart store,” store manager Marco Jimenez said. “This supercenter is being built with our customers in mind and will feature a fresh produce department and free grocery pickup which are not available at our current Lake Elsinore location. We look forward to bringing more options to the Lake Elsinore community.”
In addition to being larger, the new supercenter will serve as an anchor for an up-and-coming area of Lake Elsinore that is expanding with new homes and businesses. The new store will offer more services and options for customers than the current Lake Elsinore Walmart, including Walmart’s free Grocery Pickup service, a full-service deli, meat and bakery department and a fresh produce department with a wide range of organic fruits and vegetables. The store will also feature some of Walmart’s latest retail innovations to help associates work smarter and improve the shopping experience for customers. The supercenter is planned to celebrate its grand opening at the end of this year.
Opening with free Grocery Pickup
Lake Elsinore customers of the new store can enjoy Walmart’s Grocery Pickup option. It gives them the convenience of shopping online and the ease of picking up groceries without having to leave their cars and at no additional cost. Walmart plans to expand the popular program to more than 69 stores across the state by the end of the year. The company also recently introduced Walmart Voice Order, which allows customers to simply say “Hey Google, talk to Walmart,” and the Google Assistant will add items directly to their Walmart Grocery cart.
The store will employ 100 new associates for positions within the store. Applicants interested in careers at Walmart can apply at a store’s hiring kiosk or online at www.Walmartcareers.com. At Walmart, associates have access to competitive wages, affordable benefits and the chance to build a career. More than 75% of store management teams started as hourly associates and 40% of those promotions went to associates within the first year of their employment.
