A new Walmart store has opened in California, and it’s a major win for the retailer that was recently shuttered after a series of health scares.
Walmart has been the subject of a series from the Food and Water Watch group, which reports on Walmart and its suppliers.
The latest store opened Monday in Fresno, a suburb of Fresno, and is the company’s largest store outside of its home state of Tennessee.
In a statement, Walmart said that the Fresno store “is one of a number of Walmart locations to open in the Bay Area in the coming months.
It is a new, expanded store designed to meet the evolving needs of the region.”
Walmart has long had a strong presence in the U.S. but has struggled to find success in the last few years, after the company lost customers due to higher health care costs.
The company said it will continue to invest in new technology and expand into new markets, including expanding its e-commerce presence.
“The new Fresno store will offer customers a variety of Walmart-branded merchandise, including new Walmart-brand clothes, shoes, accessories, and more,” Walmart said.
The Fresno store is not the only store to open across the Bay area this year.
Walmart is also expanding its store in San Jose, which is also in the middle of a severe heat wave.
Walmart plans to open another new store in Oakland, Calif., in early 2018.
