The new store, approximately 49,000 s/f and one-third the size of a Walmart Supercenter, is located at 3335 Hempstead Turnpike in Mews Plaza in Levittown. It will be open daily from 7 a.m. to 11 p.m.
The Walmart Neighborhood Market format offers quick and convenient shopping, with a full grocery department, including organic and natural selections. The store features prepared food options, fresh-baked breads, self-serve deli and a bakery.
The pharmacy offers a full range of products and services. Pharmacy team members can answer product and prescription questions and offer health and wellness solutions.
As part of its opening celebration, the store presented grants from Walmart and the Walmart Foundation to local community groups, including Nassau County Police Athletic League (Levittown Unit) ($2,500); Long Island Center for Independent Living ($2,500); Hempstead Boys & Girls Club ($2,500); Levittown Volunteer Fire Department ($2,420).
Walmart also announced a recent donation of $50,000 from the Walmart Foundation’s State Giving Council to the Long Island Council of Churches (LICC) for emergency food purchases for its hungry guests in Nassau and Suffolk Counties.
The new store employs more than 100 full- and part-time associates.
“We are very excited to welcome Walmart to Levittown and to our business community, and could not be more pleased that they have chosen to revitalize a vacant space at such a vital location in our town. The jobs and economic activity are sorely needed,” said Steven Philmus, president, Levittown Chamber of Commerce.
