A Peek Inside Walmart’s New ‘Supercenter Of The Future’

Last June we provided a sneak peek at Walmart’s latest electronics department reset, courtesy of our friends at Field Agent.

Now, as the world’s largest retailer continues to roll out new design elements in pursuit of the “supercenter of the future,” Field Agent’s undercover crew hit three remodeled stores, in Roeland Park and Kansas City, Kan., and Springfield, Ill., camera phones firmly in hand.

As Walmart itself said of the refresh last year in a company blog, “The electronics and entertainment areas have a sleek, modern look that customers say feels very welcoming and on-trend.” Added Sherry Curtis-Swenson, who manages Walmart’s skunk lab test store in Rogers, Ark., “One of the things that we noticed early on as people walk by electronics is that they stop and look, and then they get drawn in.”

See if you experience the same effect in the following “before-and-after” Field Agent photos of current and remodeled departments.
