Phoenix — Walmart has broken ground on a 148,000-square-foot Walmart Supercenter located at Metrocenter Mall in Phoenix.
The new Supercenter will feature a full-service pharmacy and a complete line of groceries, including organic selections, fresh dairy and meat departments. Walmart will construct the supercenter with LED lighting, high-efficiency HVAC units and drought-tolerant landscaping, irrigated with a low-flow and drip water system. The Supercenter is scheduled for completion in spring 2017, and will employee an estimated 250 associates. Metrocenter Mall, owned by Carlyle Development Group, opened in 1973.
