Wal-Mart Debuts Neighborhood Market Design in Tulsa

The Wal-Mart Stores Inc. has opened its sixth Neighborhood Market in Tulsa – the first to open in the U.S. that will share a new design based on months of customer research on Wal-Mart’s Neighbohood Market concept.
The store, at 4720 E. 21st St., opened its doors to the public at 8 a.m. on Jan. 17.
Throughout the store, architects and designers added earth-tone colors with natural woods that define each store department and creates a “store within a store” feel. Photography highlights selections and departments in the store, along with different decor and signage.
With 112 stores operating across the United States, the Wal-Mart Neighborhood Market is the company’s youngest store concept, providing consumers the Wal-Mart value in a smaller, convenient “neighborhood” store format.
Wal-Mart plans to open 15 to 20 new Neighborhood Market stores in the next year.
With concave fixtures, wider aisles and “towers” that display trends in health and beauty, the re-design aims to create a more personal experience for the shopper. The location has changed to be closer to the pharmacy and stationery departments.
Neighborhood Market stores are not new to Tulsa. The first store opened on Delaware Avenue in 2000 and there are now six such stores in the Tulsa area.
The new 39,000 SF store features a full line of groceries. Its redesigned deli offers a variety of prepared foods. The store features a drive-through pharmacy with two drive-up lanes. The store will be open 24 hours, seven days per week and will include six full-service and four self check-out lanes.
