The world’s tiniest Walmart opens in Atlanta
Walmart made retail history today by opening its tiniest store ever. While a small Walmart-the shop near Georgia Tech’s campus is about 2,500 square ft-appears as an oxymoron, don’t allow the size fool you.
Dubbed “Walmart on Campus,” the midtown Atlanta store offers from ink jets to frozen treats to shampoo to cold cuts. “I’m confident they’ve just about everything I’d buy,” stated one student as she squeezed past me within the frozen food aisle. As the store doesn’t offer bikes or build-it-yourself furniture, I’d state that student designed a pretty fair assessment.
