Walmart plans to spend $68 million this year to expand or remodel 11 of its New Jersey stores, including stores in Kearny and Boonton, and to open one new supercenter in Mount Laurel.
Walmart, after a period of rapid expansion in New Jersey, is, like other retailers, shifting its focus to remodeling and improving existing stores, rather than opening new ones. The company has just one upcoming store opening in New Jersey this year, a Mount Laurel store that is scheduled to open this spring. The Kearny store at 150 Harrison Ave. and the Boonton store at 300 Wootton St. are among the eight New Jersey stores that will be remodeled. Three stores, in North Brunswick, Cinnaminson and Rio Grande, will be expanded.
As part of its remodeling and expansion plans in New Jersey, Walmart, the country's largest retailer, will expand its online grocery order pickup service to 13 additional stores in 2018 and 2019. It also plans to add automated pickup towers, similar to one it debuted in the Secaucus store in November, to more stores.
