The converting of the old Great Indoors site into a new Walmart Supercenter is nearly complete in Burbank’s Empire Center. “We currently project opening in June,” according to Delia Garcia, Director of Communications for Walmart. After months of controversy, the remodeling has been steady and uneventful. The Walmart Supercenter will be around 143, 000 square feet and Garcia says it”will offer our Burbank customers the convenience of one-stop shopping for affordable groceries and a broad assortment of general merchandise.”

A news release claims Walmart will be filling “approximately 300” openings at the new Burbank store. “We look forward to building a team of hard-working associates that reflects and serves the Burbank community,” said store manager Panthi Patel in the release. Many of the new hires are coming on board this month reportedly to help get the store ready for its grand opening in a few weeks.

Applications are being taken online at  http://careers.walmart.com . Also, Walmart has opened a temporary hiring center at 201 East Magnolia Avenue, Suite 138. Applications for full and part -time associates are accepted 8 a.m. to 7 p.m., seven days a week.

    I have lived in Burbank since 1964. It seems like anything that has opened in Burbank has had a “proud to be in Burbank” grand opening celebration / giveaways / specials.
    Here is just a tiny list: ZODYS, KMART, AMC , IKEA, RALPHS, WHITE ELEPHANT @ the currant FRYS, FRYS, $.99 cents store, DEL TACO, AMERICAN WAY THRIFT SHOP, and more. BUT DID WAL MART DO ANYTHING SPECIAL TODAY??? NOPE!!!! Here is the funniest thing ever: the MONEY MACHINE WAS OUT OF ORDER!!!!!

    Samm,

    Apparently Walmart threw it’s biggest celebration over the weekend with what it called a A Family Welcome with giveways and family activities according to the company website. Hopefully, in the past few days, they’ve had time to fix the money machine.
