    Walmart Building Its First Convenience Store for Test

    No current plans for additional locations of this format.

    BENTONVILLE, Ark. – Wal-Mart Stores Inc. plans to build its first convenience store in the same town as its headquarters, according to a Northwest Arkansas Business Journal report.

    The new c-store will be built at the northwest corner of Arkansas Highway 102 and South Walton Boulevard, on a 2.01-acre site the company purchased for $4.5 million in September. It will offer gas, snacks and beverages along with staples such as milk, bread and eggs.

    "We know this type of convenience store is popular with customers," said Walmart spokeswoman Deisha Barnett. "We're excited about the opportunity to test a new store and learn."

    There are no current plans to build additional Walmart c-stores, Barnett added.
