Walmart Neighborhood Market to anchor Marketplace at Central

Marketplace at Central announced that Walmart Neighborhood Market will become its anchor tenant, opening a 43,619-square-foot location for June. Marketplace at Central is located at the Southeast corner of Central and Dunlap Avenues on 111 E. Dunlap Ave. Phoenix, AZ.

Whitestone focuses on value creation in its centers, creating communities within their properties. “The addition of Walmart Neighborhood Market rounds out Marketplace at Central as a retail destination that offers visitors a one-stop shop to many of their shopping and dining needs,” said James C. Mastandrea, Whitestone’s Chairman and Chief Executive Officer. “Because of Walmart’s reputation and standing as a Fortune 100 company, we have confidence this concept will do well and be a part of this community for years to come.”

Walmart Neighborhood Markets were designed in 1998 as a smaller-footprint option for communities in need of a pharmacy, affordable groceries and merchandise. Walmart Neighborhood Markets offer fresh produce, meat and dairy products, bakery and deli items, household supplies, health and beauty aids and a pharmacy.

Marketplace at Central, located at the Southeast corner of Central and Dunlap Avenues, joins other national retailers including Ross Dress for Less, Sally Beauty Supply, Dollar Tree, Little Caesar’s Pizza, H&R Block and The UPS Store.
