A new Wal-Mart concept will open on the border of Augusta Pines and the Village of Creekside Park Feb. 15 at 25800 Kuykendahl Road, Tomball.
The store will house a Chobani Cafe—the first location outside of New York. The 2,000-square-foot cafe will bring Mediterranean-centric dishes to the new Wal-Mart concept and will officially open with a grand opening celebration at 10 a.m. Feb. 28.
This prototype “smart” Wal-Mart will feature innovative approaches to technology, services, products and layout. These innovations include Mobile Scan and Go—a feature that allows customers to scan items with their mobile devices while shopping, pay instantly and skip the checkout line—as well as free car side delivery for items ordered online.
The new store will also feature the Greater Houston area’s first Wal-Mart Care Clinic, which is an in-store primary health care clinic staffed by licensed nurse practitioners. Patients will have access to services, such as health screenings, vaccinations, lab testing, wellness and preventative care, acute care diagnosis and treatment and management of certain chronic conditions.
Wal-Mart grand opening celebrations will take place Feb. 15-19 with giveaways, samples and family friendly activities.
