Three Walmart Supercenters Planned For Collin County

Construction is expected to begin this spring and summer

Over the next five years, Walmart plans to build 150 supercenters across the U.S. — three of which were recently announced for Celina, Melissa and Frisco.

Construction is slated to commence this spring and summer, marking the debut of Walmart stores in Celina and Melissa. The Celina location is planned for the northwest corner of Preston Road and Collin County Outer Loop, while Melissa will be situated on the southwest corner of McKinney Street and Legacy Ranch Drive. 

According to The Dallas Morning News the Celina store will serve as the cornerstone of the upcoming Shawnee Trail Development, a mixed-use complex slated to encompass additional retail outlets, restaurants and urban residential spaces.

Meanwhile, Walmart collaborated with city officials in Melissa to secure zoning approvals, confirming plans for a micro-fulfillment center in the store to handle online orders.

The Frisco store will be constructed at 16600 FM 23, with construction scheduled to commence on June 11, 2024. This will be the fifth Walmart Supercenter in Frisco.

In January, the company announced the 150 stores with an additional 650 set to be remodeled. Over 75 of the remodels are planned for the North Texas region. 

According to Walmart, the new and remodeled stores will reflect the company’s store of the future concept, featuring improved layouts, expanded product selections and innovative technology to help associates better support customers. The new concept also features expanded health and wellness aisles and a larger pharmacy and vision center.

As Local Profile previously reported, earlier this year Walmart also announced a new expansion across North Texas for its drone delivery service thanks to a partnership with Wing and Zipline, two on-demand drone delivery providers approved by the FAA. The expansion includes over 30 towns in the DFW area, including Frisco.

“We’re proud that improving our stores also has a tangible impact in the communities we serve,” Walmart said in the announcement. “What a win it is to invest in America, grow our business and move toward a more sustainable future — all at the same time.”
