Walmart Canada is breaking ground on August 19 for its first distribution centre in Atlantic Canada—a brand new, 223,000-square-foot facility in Moncton, N.B. that is slated to open in the fall of 2022.
The new distribution centre will provide fresh and frozen groceries to 43 of Atlantic Canada's Walmart stores. The project is expected to create hundreds of jobs, including construction and engineering jobs, as well as jobs within the distribution centre.
Grocery Business reported on this story earlier this year.
