New Walmart training center to open in Topeka

KSAL StaffAugust 7, 2016

Walmart is planning a new 3,000-square foot training center in Topeka.

Walmart spokesman Kory Lundberg says the new Topeka facility is part of a nationwide plan that includes 200 centers located in stores across the country. Lundberg says the centers are dedicated facilities for some supervisors to get hands-on training.

In paperwork filed in June with the City of Topeka planning department, Walmart indicated it would build the Topeka center near the east end of a store there.

Lundberg told The Topeka Capital-Journal (http://j.mp/2b0UdZI) that Walmart elected to build 200 training academies nationwide to make it easier for employees to receive training near their homes. The Topeka facility will add about 14 positions for trainers to the store.

He says the training center is expected to be running next year.
