Arvada’s First Walmart Supercenter opens

Posted

The first Walmart Supercenter in Arvada opened its doors Aug. 9 at 9400 Ralston Road.

Besides groceries and general merchandise, it sells apparel, hardware, home accessories, electronics and more. There also are on-site services such as a full pharmacy with drive-thru, a tire and auto service center, and a free store pickup service from Walmart.com.

The store employs approximately 300 full- and part-time associates, 175 of which had already been serving area customers at the Arvada Walmart Neighborhood Market and the Wheat Ridge Walmart. The remaining 125 positions are newly created.

As part of its grand opening, Walmart held a ribbon cutting fundraiser that earned $2,000 for area charities including the Arvada Center for the Arts and Humanities, Ralston House Child Advocacy Center, Rocky Mountain Children’s Health Foundation, and the Arvada West music department.

The company also pledged to donate to the Blessing Box at The Rising Church in Olde Town Arvada.
