Walmart U.S. will build approximately 120 to 150 small format stores next fiscal year.“We will accelerate growth of our Neighborhood Markets because of their strong returns, consistent comp sales performance and double-digit net sales increases,” said Bill Simon, Walmart U.S. president and CEO. “We will continue to build and leverage the supercenter format, which remains our primary format for growth. We plan to open approximately 115 supercenters next year, including relocations and expansions.
