Walmart Opens Arkansas's First Market Fulfillment Center Today


Walmart will host the grand opening of its first high-tech Market Fulfillment Center in Arkansas at Store 100 on S. Walton in Bentonville, including a ribbon cutting ceremony today, May 22, at 2:30p.

  • Getting techy: The 40,000-sq-ft Market Fulfillment Center inside the store is powered by a high-tech storage and retrieval system called Alphabot, which leaders believe will promote exciting transformations in fulfillment, customer satisfaction, and associate opportunity.
  • Community: The grand opening will include remarks from Bentonville Mayor Stephanie Orman and CEO of Walmart U.S. John Furner, then the leadership team at Store 100 will present $15,000 in donations to Bentonville High School, Bentonville West High School, and Bentonville Schools Ignite Professional Studies Program for the progress of technological and educational development.
