The grand opening of a newly renovated Walmart Supercenter in Phoenix is set to be an exciting event, complete with $4,000 in grants to local nonprofits and a special appearance by NASCAR racer Bubba Wallace.
The store, located at 7575 W. Lower Buckeye Road, will host their re-grand opening celebration on Friday, November 3rd at 8 a.m.
Joining in the festivities will be the Luke Air Force Base Color Guard, the Arizona Cardinals cheerleaders, and of course, Bubba Wallace. Additionally, there will be performances by the Sierra Linda High School band and choir, the Mariachis Alma Nacional, and Ballet Folklorico De Santa Maria.
As part of their commitment to the local community, Walmart will also be presenting $2,000 grants to both Angels on Patrol and St. Mary’s Food Bank.
In addition to the store improvements, Walmart has commissioned a new mural designed and illustrated by Tony Plak and Menina. This vibrant piece encapsulates the diversity and local culture of Phoenix and is part of Walmart’s Community Mural Program, which celebrates communities across America through public art installations.
“The inspiration for this mural comes from the unique name of the city – Phoenix,” shared Tony Plak and Menina, the artists from the group Severos. “The vibrant colors of its sunsets, the earthy tones that surround it, and the resilient vegetation that thrives in extreme weather, much like the hardworking people who call this city home. Phoenix represents a rebirth each day, just like the phoenix bird, as it seeks a better tomorrow.”
