The Washington Heights Walmart is scheduled to be open in 2012 and will be Houston's first urban Walmart store and the firt to be located inside loop 610. Walmart worked closely with the developer, neighborhood groups, and the City in order to create a retail store that is uniquely designed and compatible to integrate with the surrounding community. The wide merchandise mix that Walmart offers will make an impact by supplying the immediate area with a full grocery offering featuring significant organic products as well as essential retail goods and services. The design and use of this new prototype is the latest and most responsive design from Walmart and is truly much more aligned with the spirit of Houston’s inner-loop location.
