The 10,000 square foot store is at 83rd and South Holland Road. It has groceries, dry goods and a pharmacy.
The Express store is one-tenth the size of a Supercenter. It has no televisions, clothing, bakery, lawn and garden section or large furniture items. But shoppers can have those and other items shipped for free to the store or to their homes for a fee.
"I'm addicted to Walmart, so now I don't have to drive on the other side of town, said shopper Toya Faulkner.
Next spring the retailer plans to open a full sized Walmart Supercenter to join the Express store.
