The newest location of the ‘WalMart on Campus’ concept opened today near the Georgia Tech campus in Atlanta. This is only the third WalMart store featuring a much smaller format, in this case approximately 2,500 square feet. The others are at the University of Arkansas and Arizona State University.
It is located in the Midtown Technology Square on 5th Street near Spring Street. The area known as Midtown Technology Center is an urban concentration of stores, restaurants and the Georgia Tech Hotel and Conference Center.
Basic consumer items such as food, beverages, and school supplies will be on the shelves. There is also a full service pharmacy and a Money Center. There was considerable traffic at the store for the Grand Opening. Store hours Monday through Saturday will be from 8 a.m. to 10 p.m. On Sunday, hours will be from 10 a.m. to 6 p.m.
