Wednesday morning the Supercenter celebrated the remodel with a grand reopening ceremony. They gave out over $8,900 in donations to local organizations during the event.
Those receiving funds included the VFW, Putnam County Museum, the Visitors and Convention Center, People Pathways, Relay for Life, Putnam County Youth Development and science teacher John Gardner for Greencastle High School. The grants came from the Wal-Mart Foundation.
"We believe in giving back to the community," said Wal-Mart Store Manager Cliff Higgerson.
Four Wal-Mart associates who have worked for the Greencastle store since it was opened in 1986 were recognized. Larry Goodman, Jody Funk, Brenda Stinson and Glenna Sutherlin were honored. Stinson was unable to attend.
When Wal-Mart representatives promised the parking lot would be repaired this summer, they got a round of applause.
"They have promised to get it done this summer and I know it won't be soon enough," smiled the representative.
Wal-Mart is located at 1750 E. Indianapolis Road. They can be reached at 653-1278.
