What it is: That's right, I'm posting on one of the most widely known stores in the while country. I know everyone knows that Walmart is a huge supercenter store that sells anything that you could possibly need from groceries to car parts to baby essentials. Why then should I include them if you already know about them? I just wanted to let you know about the new location that just opened up off of Martin Luther King near its intersection with Roxboro. We stopped by the other day and wanted to fill everyone in on what we found.
When we first walked in, we noticed that it just felt smaller than some of the other Walmarts we had been in. However, while it felt smaller it seemed to have all of the sections that we were used to in a Walmart, including a fairly large grocery section.
What we liked: The new location makes it more convenient for lots of shoppers. However, our biggest draw in going to Walmart is that there are just some items there that are so much cheaper than other stores. Our biggest find recently has been the GoGo Squeeze portable applesauces. My toddlers both LOVE these and they're so convenient. At Harris Teeter, we pay $2.99 for a four pack, but at Walmart you can get them for $2.29. Savings like that make it worthwhile for me to head over. Has anyone else found any other items that are a really great bargain at Walmart?
In addition, we've also been stopping in at the Walmart in the New Hope Commons Shopping Center at the intersection of 15-501 and I-40. If you haven't been in there in a while, you might want to give them another try because the store is recently renovated and much more pleasant to shop in now.
What we would change: Walmart is what it is. It's not a local store, and it doesn't have interesting, unique local items. Plus, it can be hard for you to find what you need in such a big store. In addition, I was wondering if the smaller size of the newer Walmart might affect its selection in certain areas. Has anyone found this to be true?
