Retailer Update:

Does your Walmart have a Market Fulfillment Center?

bill read

During recent travels Bill Read, executive vice president of Retail Specialists, came across a Walmart adding a new Drive-Thru Pick-up service and a Market Fulfillment Center (MFC) in the store. An MFC is a partially automated storage and retrieval system for picking and packing orders for pick up or delivery.

Quick Facts

  • Walmart first tested the system in 2019
  • Includes drive-thru for customer pick-up
  • A few new locations were announced, such as Jacksonville, FL
  • By adding 10-20,000 sq ft to existing stores, delivery and pick-up are faster.
  • Images of new construction at Turkey Creek Walmart in Knoxville, TN

My relationship with the Retail Strategies team has been extremely valuable over the last couple of years as I’ve searched for sites in the Southeast. They have been persistent and provided any information they could gather for available properties that fit my criteria. If they received news that a space was coming available they made sure to immediately give me a call and connect with the owners. I would recommend using this service to any of my colleagues looking in their client cities.
