Charlottetown is getting a Walmart supercentre

Walmart in Charlottetown is being converted into a supercentre.

Employees at Walmart have been told that the conversion will be complete in time for January 2015, although a spokesperson with Walmart Canada said late Thursday that they can’t confirm the date.

“I can confirm that we’re planning to convert the Charlottetown store into a supercentre,’’ said Rosalyn Carneiro, manager of public relations, “but I can’t confirm any dates around when we anticipate construction will start or be completed.’’

Walmart supercenters tend to offer a full-service supermarket component, including meat and poultry, baked goods, a deli, frozen foods, dairy products, garden produce and seafood.

    Oh no............. Not another bigger place for old fogies to lean on their shopping carts and fill them up with everything that ends in 97¢.

    Sorry, I won't be shopping for cheap junk, made by starving children in a dark room, so fat cats can buy more luxury yachts. I will shop for locally made items and buy the rest from locally owned businesses.

      I assume you don't shop at Sobeys, Superstore...etc?

    I believe the reason this didn't happen before had to do with its proximity to Sobey's. Given how long it takes for things to change here, it probably took until now to get construction granted.

    Type "Truth About Walmart" into your computer search engine. Unless, of course, you don't dare. Then re-read your comments. Go ahead - it can't hurt, can it?

      Businesses need to do surveys before they make an investment in their own business (in the form of expansion, remodeling, or new larger location)???????????????????? When did that start ???????????? After Sobey's, Target and Kent made their investments????????????

      Don't want to compete? More like it's in the lease agreement.

    Competition for lower food prices can only be a good thing for consumers.

    I'm surprised it's taken this long. The Walmart in Moncton announced they were becoming a supercentre the moment Target said they were moving in.
