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.
