Team celebrates completion of Sam’s Club, Walmart stores

Sam’s Club in Fort Worth, Texas, opened on Friday, January 12th following an extensive remodel.

The project included interior and exterior demolition, renovation of refrigerated cases, offices, restrooms, showroom spaces and more, and construction of several new areas, including the hearing center, café, pharmacy and health care center.

All work was performed at night, allowing the store, which is owned and operated by Walmart, to remain open throughout the remodel.

“This was our first Sam’s Club remodel,” said George Heath, Vice President – Retail Single Tenant, EMJ Construction – Dallas. “We took many years of remodel experience to Walmart and provided a new phasing plan and a new barricade system that allowed them to advertise the upcoming improvements and resulted in a gain of store sales.”

As a result of the project team’s innovative logistics solutions and commitment to exceeding the client’s goals, Walmart says it plans to use this project as a model for future Walmart and Sam’s Club renovations.
