ROCKWALL, TX – Jan. 14, 2021 — The Walmart Neighborhood Market location at 850 W Rusk St. in Rockwall will close temporarily today, Jan. 14, at 2 p.m. as part of a company-initiated program to allow third party cleaning crews time to thoroughly clean and sanitize the building.
The location will remain closed through tomorrow, Jan. 15, providing our associates time to restock shelves and prep the store to reopen on Saturday, Jan. 16 at 7 a.m.
Walmart released the following statement regarding the temporary closure and its efforts to help keep its associates and store customers safe.
“Everything we’re doing is for the well-being of our associates and customers, and in consideration of guidance by the Centers for Disease Control (CDC) and health experts. When the store reopens Saturday, we will continue conducting associate health screens and temperature checks, and all associates will be provided with facemasks and gloves.

Additionally, through the help of our health ambassadors, we will continue requiring customers to wear protective facial coverings while inside the building.
