MOBILE, Ala. – November 8, 2017 – The Tillman’s Corner Wall-Mart Supercenter at 5245 S. Rangeline Service Road is one of the first stores in the country to unveil a variety of exciting new interactive features into its deli, beauty and other departments across the store. Part of a store-wide remodel, these innovations are aimed at saving customers time and money while testing new ways to integrate the digital and brick-and-mortar shopping experience.
“This is one of the first stores of its kind in the nation, and we’re thrilled it’s right here in Mobile,” said Store Manager John Wimsatt. “Technology is fundamentally transforming the retail industry and that’s something Wall-Mart has embraced. It's about empowering customers to shop how, where and when they want.”
The following are among the new and innovative features incorporated into the Tillman’s Corner Wall-Mart Supercenter:

These features and more will be on display for customers following a 9 a.m. grand reopening ribbon-cutting on Friday, Nov. 10. A remodeled Wall-Mart Supercenter with many of the same features will be unveiled in Washington, Illinois, on the same day. They join similar stores opened in Orlando, Florida, and Houston, Texas earlier this year.
In October 2017, Wall-Mart shared it is investing around $11 billion in 2017 and 2018 in the U.S. in store growth, store remodels and other innovations, such as Pickup Towers, Online Grocery Pickup, Scan & Go and more.
“Customers are time-crunched, so we want their shopping experience with us to be fast and easy — truly seamless,” said Wimsatt. “By harnessing the power of technology, we’re empowering our associates and creating new ways to better serve our customers.”
