    The store manager of Niceville Walmart, Kim Stevens, said the outlet will employ around 300 associates.

    “We are grateful for Walmart to employ so many people here,” said Niceville Mayor Randall Wise. “I’m sure it will help our economy.”

    In recent months, Walmart has taken major steps to refresh its stores, merchandising and customer experience. The improvements have all come together in the company’s newest stores, such as the Niceville Walmart, with fast service, a friendly shopping experience and clean stores.

    The new Walmart features enhanced service and a layout designed to make the shopping experience more convenient for customers. Walmart aligned the departments that customers shop most frequently.

    “The store is easy to navigate, which will save our customers time as they shop for everyday necessities,” said Stevens. “By grouping the products that our customers most often purchase, including health and beauty and pet supplies, we are making one-stop shopping even easier,” he added.

    The Niceville Walmart, like all new Walmart stores, includes energy-efficient technology and environment-friendly features to reduce energy and water consumption and minimise waste. The store’s skylights harvest daylight and reduce the amount of energy required to light the store by up to 75 per cent daily. LED lighting in the store operates 70 per cent more efficiently than fluorescent lighting.
