Yukon’s Walmart Neighborhood Market celebrated its reopening on Friday morning, April 28.

The public was “welcomed back” to the newly remodeled store, 1001 E Main.

The Yukon store remodel solidifies Walmart’s commitment to providing customers with a “seamless shopping experience,” Walmart officials said.

The transformation features innovations and improvements designed to elevate Yukon shoppers’ experience at their Walmart Neighborhood Market.

The April 28th festivities featured a celebratory ribbon-cutting, recognition of community partnerships and $1,000 grant presentations to the Yukon Fire Department, Yukon Police Department, Yukon High School, and Yukon Sharing Ministry.

A Yukon-focused mural – designed and illustrated by local artist Clint Reid – was revealed.

The mural depicts Route 66 and other culturally significant images as part of Walmart’s Community Mural Program, the largest public-facing art installation across America.

Walmart regional market manager Crystal Lassiter said the Yukon store is the company’s “highest sales volume” neighborhood market in Oklahoma.

Updates to Yukon’s Walmart Neighborhood Market store include an enhanced beer and wine section, a paint refresh and an expansion of over-the-counter pharmacy items.

“We are thrilled to celebrate these improvements and what it means for the Yukon community,” store manager Erich Johnson said. “These changes make it easier for our customers to find what they need quickly, including more scan-and-go stations to reduce wait times.”
