Walmart has opened its latest concept in grocery pick-up in Thornton.

The 4,000-square-foot Walmart (NYSE: WMT) store is the second one in the country for the mega-retailer and grocery store and it's a new concept of an online grocery order pick-up location, a convenience store that sells hot sandwiches and coffee, as well as a gas station.

"The concept was born because at Walmart we are constantly looking for ways to add convenience. Customers are changing the way they shop and we want to make sure we are changing too," said Gina Kretoski, Walmart eCommerce market coach who was in Thornton Thursday to talk with customers.
