Campbell River Walmart to reopen Tuesday morning

The Campbell River Walmart is back in business.

It re-opens tomorrow at 7:00am sharp.

The store’s been closed for repairs since someone purposely set a fire in the toilet paper aisle as a diversion tactic on Oct. 1st.

Walmart Canada says from clean-up, to restocking the shelves with new inventory, its teams have been working very hard to get the store ready to re-open as quickly as they could.

While the store is not fully stocked, it will be getting more merchandise in the days and weeks ahead.
