A lot of this stuff is because it’s new, it’ll disappear with time. The balloons, the staff being overly friendly, the people guiding you to spots. Those things are to show off and be inviting and create business, also for things like crowd control, because places like walmart expect to be busy when they open new stores, so they plan to have employees there to keep the situation under control… even if it’s not busy at the time the staff will be there in case. That’s just standard when stores open, we’ve had a lot of major store openings here lately and this is what I’ve experienced at all of them. A lot of these exist in other walmarts too, basically all of them. Lots of checkouts, judging from the picture that honestly is no more checkouts than any walmart here, it’s probably less (depends on how many tills aren’t pictured). Basically aside from the underground parking and all that goes with it, we have all of this in every walmart here. Some of these would be changed to suit location, what police force is there (unless they are there 24/7 it’s nothing new, police show up at walmart if they’re needed, also they shop and stuff sometimes when they aren’t busy), and what flags they hang. We don’t have such nice exteriors on our walmart’s here, they all just have that walmart look. Oh and the pork stomach and beef tongue, but they can’t sell those here anyway (at least beef tongue anyway).
