Walmart completes remodel

Craft fair, art studio anniversary on tap

Walmart recently celebrated the grand reopening of its remodeled Gilroy Supercenter at 7150 Camino Arroyo, which includes the launch of the retailer’s Pickup Tower.

The improvements at the Gilroy Supercenter are part of Walmart’s plan to spend an estimated $145 million this year in California through the remodeling and opening of 21 stores.

The 16-foot-tall Pickup Tower is a vending machine where customers can pick up products they ordered online.

“We’re excited for the Gilroy community to try out the Pickup Tower and to see the new assortment of items in the store,” said Gilroy Walmart store manager Whitney Harris. “We have an expanded section of wine, including chilled wine, and customers will also see great improvements have been made to the grocery and electronics departments.”

In addition to the Pickup Tower, the remodel project included a new produce, bakery and deli section layout, new LED lighting, interactive electronics displays and more.

Craft fair set for downtown

The Gilroy Downtown Business Association is holding its Craft and Vendor Fair on Sept. 7 from 10 a.m. to 3 p.m.
