Walmart Excited To Show Off Updated Admiral Store
TULSA, Oklahoma - After several months of repairs and renovations, a Tulsa Walmart is ready to reopen to the public.
In April, the Walmart at Admiral and Memorial closed to repair extensive plumbing issues. While the store was closed, the company decided to take advantage and do some renovations as well.
Thursday, News On 6 got to take a look inside the store, and speak with spokesperson Erica Jones, who said they are looking forward to opening back up.
“We’re really excited to have everyone out here today for the reopening. We appreciate their patience as we went through these repair processes and, as well as, getting some new features added to the store. We’re just really excited to bring these to them.”
In addition to fixing the plumbing issues, Jones said shoppers can expect the store to be easier to navigate, and more customer-friendly.
Jones said they’ve updated their “fresh” area – produce, deli, bakery, meat – and added new displays and new products.
She said the baby section will allow parents to get hands-on with car seats and strollers and test them for their children.
Jones said the entertainment center will also allow customers to test more products, too, another new feature coming to the store.
“We’re trying out a lot of things, not just in this store, but stores across the country. So, they are getting, kind of, a sneak-peek at some of these things, and we’re excited. We think the customers are really going to enjoy what they see,” Jones said.
The store will reopen to the public Friday.
