Forsyth Wal-Mart remodeled, offers new products


FORSYTH, Georgia (41NBC/WMGT) – You don’t have to travel to larger cities to get the newest technology and hunting gear.

The Walmart in Forsyth is getting new products and has been remodeled. Store employees received feedback from customers on ways to improve the store.

“Anything that customers ask us for,we try to add all that stuff into as well, so that way we make sure we have the right items for them when they come in looking for them,” says Store Manager Dennis Kent.

Last year they began remodeling and now the project is complete. The store is more spacious and has new products.

“We’re going to get all of the new releases, IPhone 8s, IPhone Xs when they come out. It’s something that will only be available in 3% of the company. We expanded our hunting selection to meet the customers’ needs because we don’t want anybody to have to drive somewhere else. We want them to try to get it here in Forsyth, we wanna make it a one stop shop,” Kent adds.

“One stop shop here at this Wal-Mart, let me tell you honey.You can get anything from your electronics, your personal items, your groceries down to your medicine. We got it all under control in Forsyth,” says long time shopper Cashuan Barkley.

The store opened its doors at this location about 8 years ago. Barbara Holmes was the first cashier to ring up the first customer.

“It was a small family when I came from the small store to this store and we’ve grown from medium big to even larger,” Holmes says.

For those who shop online, Store Manager Dennis Kent says the ‘pick up today’ option has been expanded also where shoppers will have a 5 minute or less wait time.
