Walmart is expanding its one-year-old freestanding health care format beyond its initial home base. It’s also taking a new approach to how the facilities are constructed.
The retail giant said it plans to open seven more locations in Georgia by the end of the fiscal year and two in the Chicago area this fall. Walmart Health debuted in September 2019, in Dallas, Georgia, and has since expanded to six locations, with five in Georgia (including a newly opened site in Cartersville) and one in Arkansas.
In addition, Walmart Health will expand into Florida, with seven locations in the Jacksonville market in 2021, with at least one opening in the early part of the year. Walmart said it is “beginning conversations in the Orlando and Tampa markets.”Chain Storeage
