Walmart Neighborhood Markets focus on three of Walmart’s biggest categories: groceries, pharmacies, and fuel. They are much smaller than the Supercenters but still offer the same, low prices. They feature a wide range of fresh and organic produce, gluten-free products, other groceries, beauty supplies, and more. Walmart Neighborhood Markets also have on-site services, such as a fuel station, a full-service pharmacy, and a free in-store pickup service for items purchased at Walmart.com. And, like the typical Walmart Supercenter, Walmart Neighborhood Markets have Walmart MoneyCenters. Walmart Neighborhood Market MoneyCenters have all the usual financial services — you can cash checks and access other MoneyGram services, like money orders.
