FAYETTEVILLE, Ark. -- Walmart has reopened its Walmart on Campus location at the University of Arkansas in Fayetteville, Ark., after remodeling the convenience store. The changes will speed up the checkout process, the company said, and students can have their Walmart Grocery order delivered to their residence hall or campus housing.

The 3,371-square-foot Walmart on Campus store now offers expanded hours; a broader assortment of merchandise that now includes fresh sandwiches, salads, yogurt parfaits and snacks; grocery delivery; pickup lockers; and self-checkout.

"Our fresh selection has expanded to now provide salads, sandwiches, lunch meat and more," said store manager Randy Sterling. "We are reopening with a new self-checkout feature and an exciting new Walmart Pickup locker system that will reduce the in-store wait time for students who have placed orders online and are coming to pick up those items. Our store will continue to provide full pharmacy services with free on-campus prescription delivery and the best customer service."

To use Walmart Grocery Delivery, customers visit the retailer’s grocery website or use the Walmart Grocery mobile app to enter their ZIP codes and begin creating their shopping lists. During checkout, they select a time to for their order to be delivered and pay the delivery fee. No money is exchanged at the customer's door.

Personal shoppers select the produce, meats and other items. Grocery orders are backed by a freshness guarantee. Delivery partners drive directly to the customer's location during the chosen one-hour delivery window.

Bentonville, Ark.-based Walmart operates Walmart on Campus stores at the University of Arkansas in Fayetteville, Arizona State University in Tempe, Georgia Institute of Technology in Atlanta, the University of Missouri in Columbia and Virginia Commonwealth University in Richmond.
