The new features will also be tested to see if they'll be put in other Walmart stores across the country, a spokesperson said.
The store, at 25800 Kuykendahl Rd., will include the first Walmart Care Clinic in Houston, and the first Chobani Cafe in Texas.

The cafe will be a "Mediterranean-inspired" food center inside the store.

A drive-through pickup lane will allow customers to pick up anything in the store, gathered by a Walmart personal shopper.

Amazon is testing a grocery store model that works without checkout lines.



There's no need for a checkout -- mobile scan and go allows you to scan items with your phone as you shop, then pay as you walk out the door.

The store also gets a sleek, modern look with a large glass entry and a new layout.

Grand opening weekend is Feb. 15-19.
