The Fishers Walmart Supercenter celebrated the completion of its six-month remodeling project with a ribbon-cutting ceremony Oct. 13.
The remodeling of the store at 8300 E 96th St. in Fishers expanded several departments and enhanced the store’s overall look. The celebration included an unveiling of a community-inspired mural and donations to local community organizations.
Jeremy Tully, the store’s lead associate, said the renovation began in May. One key aspect of the project was the store’s front, which received a makeover to give it a more modern look and feel. More registers and self-checkout lanes were added, and the self-checkout area was redesigned.
“The self-checkout now (is) a straight-through design versus the old bowl pen, where they were at a diagonal exit/entry,” Tully said.
A new Hispanic food selection was added to the grocery department. Other departments, such as the home department and clothing and apparel, received improvements as well.
“Every single thing that we touched, we replaced,” Tully said. “If it had a scratch, a dent or any sort of mark, it got replaced and brought back with new items.”
Customers entering through the grocery department entrance will see a new community-inspired mural by Julie Vornholt. The mural pays tribute to Fishers and its community.
During the ceremony, the Fishers Walmart donated $5,000 to the Fishers Police Department and $1,500 to the Humane Society for Hamilton County.
“The store is proud to be able to not only celebrate these in-store upgrades, but also honor our local community at the same time,” Fishers Walmart store manager Shelbie Butler said.
