Walmart announced last month that it plans to spend approximately $83 million this year to remodel 15 Pennsylvania stores. Stores set for improvements include locations in Harrisburg, Philadelphia and Quakertown, among others.
The $83 million planned for Pennsylvania stores is part of about $11 billion in total capital expenditures planned by the company in fiscal 2020. Nationwide, Walmart plans to add 1,200 autonomous floor scrubbers, 300 autonomous shelf-scanners, 1,200 FAST unloaders and 900 pickup towers to stores around the country. In addition, the company plans to expand online grocery pickup to 1,000 more stores and add another 800 stores.
