The Wal-Mart Supercenter In Fort Lauderdale Is Officially Open
Fort Lauderdale’s first Wal-Mart officially opened its doors Wednesday morning.
Located at 2500 W. Broward Blvd., the Wal-Mart Supercenter encompasses 185,000 square feet of space with a grocery store, pharmacy and vision center. As is the case at all Wal-Mart stores, customers will also be able to take advantage of free in-store pickup for items bought online.
Before the opening, the nearest Wal-Mart stores to the city were in Pompano Beach, Lauderdale Lakes, Sunrise and Davie.
About 100 people, including Mayor Jack Seiler, gathered at the new store for a ribbon-cutting ceremony.
The store, which is open 24 hours, seven days a week, will employ 300 full- and part-time associates.
“We are proud to be a part of the Ft. Lauderdale community,” store manager Anthony Boykins said in a release. “We look forward to opening and providing area residents with Walmart’s everyday low prices in this new year and beyond.”
