article imageOne-of-a-kind 'Walmart on Campus' at University of Arkansas Special

Fayetteville - Earlier this year, Walmart opened a unique, smaller store format on the campus of the University of Arkansas and it was a destination for many shareholders when they came to the area for the annual meeting.
According to 5News, "The first Walmart ever built on a university campus is a smaller version of the supercenters but there's still plenty here. There's food, personal items, school supplies. And even a full pharmacy and a photo center."
The one-of-a-kind Walmart on Campus opened in January as University of Arkansas students returned to campus for the spring semester. The small store was a destination for the 2011 Walmart Shareholders' Meeting shuttle buses. The shareholders' meeting was held last week and many associates and shareholders made their way to the mini-Walmart.

"The new store is about 3,500 square feet of retail space," said The Consumerist, "and replaces the former campus health center pharmacy."
