Santa Maria’s Walmart Neighborhood Market is set to be improved with some major upgrades. 

Walmart officials say they want the renovated store to have better flow so it’s easier for shoppers to navigate. One of the changes is widening store aisles.

Among the upgrades in the baby department includes floor-level strollers that shoppers can take on "test drives." 

A larger bakery, deli and produce department featuring more organic fruits and vegetables are some of the other planned improvements.
