The new Walmart Supercentre that has been in the works at Metropolis at Metrotown since earlier this year is officially opening for business.

Situated at 4545 Central Boulevard, the store has taken over a wing in the upper corner of the mall, previously occupied by Target and Zellers.

The Burnaby location will officially open doors to the public on Thursday, October 11, 2018.

It will be accessible from Central Boulevard and inside the mall, and open daily until 11 p.m.

To celebrate, Walmart Metrotown is hosting their official grand-opening party on Saturday October 13, from 11 a.m. to 3 p.m. Grand-opening attendees can look forward to family-fun activities and free samplings.

Walmart will rival Superstore within Metropolis, and compete to provide consumers a one stop shop for groceries, international foods, fashion, and home décor with everyday low prices.

Metrotown mall is one of the largest shopping centres in Canada. The three-storey complex made its debut in 1986 and has grown to accommodate over 450 shops and services. Despite the fact it attracts nearly 30 million people per year, it may be demolished in the future if the City of Burnaby gets its way.
