Walmart Canada will complete its nationwide expansion of its supercentres by opening 15 new stores by the end of January.

The retailer opened a supercentre in Winkler on Thursday morning and will open the massive Southdale location on Lakewood Boulevard January 28.

“We’re thrilled to open our 400th location in Canada this month, as well as our 300th supercentre,” said Preyash Thakrar, senior vice president, strategy and real estate. “These supercentres will provide even more Canadian communities with affordable access to quality fresh groceries and one-stop shopping, while also saving them money.”

The grand openings bring Walmart Canada’s total store count to 400 stores, including 312 supercentres and 88 discount stores.
