Plans are in the works to open 35 to 40 more Walmart Supercenters in Canada this year. The new locations will be 10 percent smaller than current stores and will include both general merchandise and full supermarkets.
The project, which includes new stores, relocations and expansions, will see an addition of up to 6,500 jobs in retail and construction. Start dates and specific store locations have not yet been announced.
The new supercenters will bring Walmart Canada's operating total to 124. The retailer also has 200 general merchandise stores in the country.
