Walmart plans $277 million Texas investment in 2018

Walmart says it will invest $277 million in Texas this year, with plans to remodel more than 40 stores, build four new stores and add a number of in-store and online tools.

The retail giant’s plans include remodeling four Central Texas Walmart stores — one each in Austin, Marble Falls, Boerne and Kerrville. In Austin, the remodel is planned for the Walmart store at 710 E Ben White Blvd., the company said in a news release.

Walmart will also expand its online grocery pickup and Scan & Go tools into more Texas markets, along with its big orange Pickup Towers.
