1970 - Lagasse family helps save Mentryville buildings as Newhall and Malibu brush fires erupt & join into worst fire in SoCal history. Twelve fires over 10 days burn 525,000 acres, kill 13 people and destroy approx. 1,500 structures. [story]


The storewide remodel of the Walmart Supercenter at 26471 Carl Boyer Drive is complete and, in addition to the many physical changes inside, Santa Clarita residents now have access to Online Grocery Pickup.

Following the grand reopening ribbon-cutting at 7:30 a.m., Friday, August 18, Santa Clarita residents will be able to order Walmart groceries online and pick them up without ever having to unbuckle their seatbelts. Customers select from up to 40,000 online grocery items, diapers, dog food and more, and choose the best time to pick up. A Walmart personal shopper loads the groceries into the car when you arrive – all at no additional cost.

“This remodel was about way more than a fresh coat of paint,” said Store Manager Travis Johnson. “It was about investing in ways for Santa Clarita customers to save time and money. Grocery shopping, especially for busy families with kids, used to take a couple of hours on the weekend. Now, it’s a matter of a few clicks and one of our associates bringing the order out to their vehicle.”

Customers will also enjoy the following store improvements:

· The addition of 10 new self-checkouts at the front of the store (bringing total to 23) to save customers time
· State-of-the-art electronics department with interactive displays that allow customers to try laptops, tablets and other technology prior to purchase
· Improved produce department layout to better reflect customer shopping patterns; expanded fresh berry cooler
· Redesigned infants department with strollers at floor level and easier access to everyday essentials like formula and diapers
· Refreshed pharmacy with additional service lanes and new consultation room
· Relocated hardware and sporting goods department; hardware and auto tools now together in one convenient location
· New-look home department with improved layout
· Walmart Pickup lounge conveniently located near front of store
· Larger Walmart MoneyCenter with easy access to a variety of in-store financial services

“These are the improvements our customers have been asking for,” said Johnson. “Listening to customers and incorporating the conveniences and experiences they want is what it means to be a store of the community.”

Job Opportunities
At Walmart, associates have access to competitive wages, affordable benefits, and the chance to build a career. More than 75 percent of store management teams started as hourly associates and 40 percent of those promotions went to associates within the first year of their employment.

  17. It’s so hard when you have 3 little ones and you forgot something small at the store and have to drive back. I love this idea. I hope it works out.

  18. I have always loved Walmart!…… I won’t use the self checkout there or anywhere, as that represents a person whose job was eliminated

  19. Paula Marino Paula Marino says:

    Still won’t shop at Walmart.

  20. I just saw this at a Walmart up north. They just remodeled and the store was beautiful and they had the pick up.
