Published 8:57am Tuesday, March 16, 2010

The Niles Wal-Mart, located at 2107 South 11th St. began an extensive renovation in February.

The store will receive a full remodel from the inside out and will represent the latest in Wal-Mart’s store design and customer experience.

The new design is based on feedback from customers and will feature a clean, open and bright new look in the store with wider aisles, low-profile shelving, bright interior paint scheme, and lighting and easy-to-read signage to help customers find the products they need.

The changes will likely be finished by April.

“We are excited to bring an improved shopping experience to our customers,” said store manager Tom Harvel.

“We listened to our customers and are redesigning the store to make shopping at Wal-Mart even easier,” he added.

Every department of the store will be updated including all new shelving, signing, flooring and product assortment. The store will also feature a new layout designed to make shopping for everyday items easier and faster by aligning the products customers purchase the most.

The store will remain open during the renovations, including all departments and services. Maps of the store layout will be available at the entrance and directional signage will be located throughout the store. The majority of construction and moving will be completed during the overnight hours to make shopping easier for customers.

The Niles Wal-Mart is hiring approximately 60 additional associates to help with the remodel.
