A new Walmart Supercenter opened Wednesday in Northeast D.C., offering consumers a broad range of fresh groceries and merchandise at affordable prices.

The store, which will employ 400 full and part-time associates, will also provide on-site services that include a full pharmacy and a free store pickup service for online shoppers.

“Our new store is a welcome addition to the Fort Totten neighborhood, and we are eager to be of service to our new friends and neighbors, especially as the holiday season kicks into high gear,” said Paul Hill, store manager.

Mayor Muriel Bowser added that the 118,000 sq. ft. store is a big deal for the Ward 4 community.

“The Fort Totten Walmart is [also] a great addition to Ward 4,” said Mayor Bowser. “The store will provide the community with access to products and services, and will create jobs for District residents. With Walmart as an anchor, Fort Totten Square is on a path to strengthen this neighborhood and create pathways to the middle class.”
