RIVERVIEW — The Walmart Neighborhood Market at 10863 Bloomingdale Ave. is scheduled to reopen Friday morning with a new look.

Walmart has been renovating stores across the state and says it will spend a total $173 million in Florida this year in store remodels.

“From new signing to the convenience of self-checkouts and online grocery pickup, customers are finding a faster, more convenient in-store experience,” Riverview store manager Dustin Lee said in a statement. “Our customers are responding to it and telling us they like it.”

The remodeled store now has eight self-checkout kiosks and six new designated online order pickup parking spots. Grocery pickup, which Walmart has been expanding all year, will launch at the store on Oct. 19.

The renovated store also has an updated exterior, fresh paint and expanded grocery options. Neighborhood Market stores focus on fresh foods and groceries more than traditional Walmart stores.

Walmart is planning a reopening ceremony for the Riverview store at 9 a.m. Friday.
