The Walmart Neighborhood Market in Altadena opens Friday, March 1. The new store, located at 2408 Lincoln Ave., will provide residents of Altadena with a convenient location for all their grocery needs, including fresh produce.
“This store will be a great fit for this community,” said Jennifer Gonzales, store manager, Altadena Walmart Neighborhood Market. “The smaller Walmart Neighborhood Market format will fill a need for shoppers seeking lower prices and quality merchandise, with a full selection of groceries and health and beauty items.”
Gonzales expects the store to draw customers from Altadena, Pasadena and La Cañada. It is located at the corner of Lincoln Avenue and Figueroa Drive.
“I’m excited to see this new Walmart Neighborhood Market open and occupy a building that has been vacant for nearly a decade,” said Bernardean Broadous, Chair, Altadena Town Council. “I believe this Neighborhood Market will offer a positive impact to the Altadena community as it has already created much needed good local jobs and contributed to local charitable organizations.”
The new Walmart Neighborhood Market is tailored for the Altadena community, featuring a wide variety of fruits and vegetables, fresh cakes and bread, as well as meats, cheeses and prepared foods. The deli will feature a Grab-and-Go section with rotisserie chicken, fresh-baked pizza and standard deli sides. In addition to the fresh produce, bakery and deli items, the store will carry a full line of groceries, including frozen foods, meat and dairy products and organic items.
“This new Walmart Neighborhood Market will offer Altadena residents another affordable and healthy grocery option in their community,” said Ed Meyers, President, Altadena Chamber of Commerce. “Additionally, nearby businesses will also benefit from any increased foot-traffic.”
Shoppers will also appreciate the convenience of the store’s pharmacy, along with a full selection of health-related products and a health and beauty area. Additional areas include stationery, paper goods, pet products and hardware items. Customers can also print their own digital photos at the store. The approximately 28,000-square-foot store will be open from 6 a.m. to 10 p.m., seven days a week. The store will offer Site-to-Store, a free service that allows customers to ship online orders from www.walmart.com free to any Walmart store for pickup.
