Employees at Walmart have been told that the conversion will be complete in time for January 2015, although a spokesperson with Walmart Canada said late Thursday that they can’t confirm the date.

“I can confirm that we’re planning to convert the Charlottetown store into a supercentre,’’ said Rosalyn Carneiro, manager of public relations, “but I can’t confirm any dates around when we anticipate construction will start or be completed.’’

Walmart supercenters tend to offer a full-service supermarket component, including meat and poultry, baked goods, a deli, frozen foods, dairy products, garden produce and seafood.
