Walmart has launched a new double-decker store concept in Dallas, Texas, featuring a Walmart store on the top floor and Sam’s Club below. The store has been designed to save Walmart money by maximising the use of the land being used, while offering customers the convenience of a one-stop shop. 

Only half of the northeast Dallas store is open as the Sam’s Club element will debut next month. The store features a three-level car park and a pulley system where shopping carts are transported from Walmart down to the garage level, according to company spokesperson Daniel Morales. At least five additional stores are planned in the Dallas-Fort Worth Metroplex.
