Dixie Highway is a new highway connecting Walmart stores in the U.S. with the Walmarts in Dixie, Missouri.
It’s the first of its kind, according to its owner, the Wal-Mart Stores Inc. The company says the highway will offer a better shopping experience for shoppers and that it will cut travel times by as much as 40 percent, with the promise of a free shopping experience.
“The Dixie Route will open on Thanksgiving Day 2019 and we’re excited to partner with the community to bring this highway to life,” said Wal-Martin President and CEO Bill Simon.
“As we look ahead to our 50th anniversary next year, we know that our customers love shopping in our stores and we want to give them an even better shopping and dining experience.
Dixie is an important part of our plan to celebrate our 50 years of success.”
The Dixie route will connect the company’s Dixie stores, where most of the merchandise is sold, to the retail stores at the nearby Walmart in the nearby town of Lincoln.
There are currently more than 2,000 Wal-Marts in the Dixie area, and many of the stores have been closed since 2017.
In 2019, the new Dixie highway will connect Wal-mart stores in Lincoln, Missouri with Dixie at the Lincoln Wal-marts, the Dixons main store.
The new highway will be a part of Wal-Maestra’s “20th Century Modern Highway” plan, which aims to make the area of the country’s largest U.K. retailer as well as its biggest supplier of goods, including clothes and household items, more attractive for shoppers.
In its announcement of the project, Wal- Maestra said it expects the project to save taxpayers about $500 million per year.
“We want to ensure that the Ditches Highway is built and operated as efficiently as possible, with minimal disruption to the local economy,” Simon said.
Wal-mart has said it plans to build the DIXON highway to connect its stores in Missouri to the Walmart stores, but the highway has been a sticking point in negotiations between the companies and the Missouri Department of Transportation (DMOT).
“While we support the vision and vision of the DIII (Dixie) route, we also recognize that DIXN is an ideal location for the new highway,” Simon wrote in the announcement.
“This is because DIX, unlike the DIV highway, does not cross Interstate 40.”
The company said the DVII (Dixons southernmost point) would be the only part of the highway that is connected to Interstate 40.
According to the announcement, the highway would be about 1.4 miles wide and about 20 miles long.
DIXON was designed in response to the demand for better shopping experiences at Walmart, where the company has struggled to maintain high-quality merchandise.
Simon has said the project will be profitable for the company.
More than $5 billion has been invested in DIXons expansion since the company acquired the Lincoln stores in 2011.
While Wal- Mart has faced a number of legal battles with local governments in the past, this is the first time that the company and DIXon have worked together.
Despite the company not having any immediate plans to expand the highway, the company said that it expects to build about 6,000 to 8,000 miles of new highways in the next 10 years.
With the opening of the Walmart stores, DIX will help the company reach more customers.
There have been about 5,500 Wal-Meisters in Missouri since 2012, and Dixie will be the second-biggest market for Wal-Merchants there.
It’s also the second highway for the Walma family, after the Highway One in New Mexico.
