CLEWISTON — As part of Walmart’s plans to spend $173 million in Florida stores this year, the Clewiston Supercenter at 1005 W. Sugarland Highway celebrated its completed remodel with a grand reopening ceremony on Friday, Oct. 25. The remodel creates a faster, more convenient in-store experience for customers and brings Walmart’s popular free Grocery Pickup service to local customers for the first time.

We’re excited to highlight all the new features and offerings we have at our grand reopening celebration and know our customers will find it’s more convenient than ever to shop in store with us.”
