This Wednesday was the grand opening of the newest Walmart store in the world and the most prestigious Walmart Neighborhood Market ever built. And why does this matter, you ask? Well, my dad, who put in 30+ years with Kroger only to be treated like crap, has worked for Walmart for less than 3 years and was given the privilege of managing this store. He has been working tirelessly to get this store open and it's his little baby! It looked amazing and I know he is glad to be back in a strictly grocery store environment, because that is where he thrives. He is also able to spend the majority of his time on the floor greeting customers and making sure everyone is happy, which are his favorite things about his job. If you are up in Northwest Arkansas, this is the new Pinnacle Neighborhood Market on Whitaker. I'm very proud of all his hard work! Here are some pictures from Wednesday.
All these pictures might seem like overkill, but if you would have grown up in a grocery store like I did (or if you are related to Monk) you can truly appreciate all of the produce stacked perfectly and all the labels on everything else facing the same way. Also, if you know my dad, you know it wasn't just like that for the grand opening...it's like that every single day!
