Dallas-area customers can now shop at a remodeled Walmart Supercenter that’s offering customers — and their pets — new ways to live better and healthier lives.

Located at 3615 Marietta Hwy. in Dallas, the community celebrated the new store features including the first-ever Walmart Health center during a grand opening Sept. 13 that included an appearance by Dr. Mehmet Öz, better known as TV’s Dr. Oz.

The Dallas Supercenter remodel features an enhanced customer shopping experience in many departments, like electronics, pharmacy and the vision center; expanded assortment and displays; and new features that help customers shop how, when and where they want in store, online or on their mobile devices, a news release stated.

All of it is conveniently located outside the store with a separate entrance for customers. The clinic will provide low, transparent pricing for key health services for local families, regardless of insurance status, the release stated.

“The customer is at the heart of everything we do, and that focus is reflected in the new Walmart Health center,” said Sean Slovenski, president of Walmart U.S. Health and Wellness.

“This state-of-the-art facility will provide quality, affordable and accessible healthcare for members of the Dallas, Georgia, community so they can get the right care at the right time, right in their hometown.”
