VESTAL, N.Y. - Twenty-five years ago, Walmart opened on the Vestal Parkway, transforming the retail corridor.
Since then, the store has been one of the highest grossing Walmart locations in the region.
Over the years, it has expanded, adding a full-service grocery and other amenities.
This summer, it underwent a remodel, adding 18 self checkouts, a new Electronics of the Future department, and an expansion of the e-commerce Pickup Today section.
Terri Cook, who oversees human resources, is one of 11 employees who have been with the store since the beginning.
"You could probably talk to any of the associates that have been here over the last 15 or 10 years and they'll tell you that if they have something that happens, something that goes wrong, they know that they can count on WalMart. We're defintely a family here at WalMart," said Cook .
To mark the occasion, the store offered free cupcakes to customers and employees.
The Vestal Walmart currently has 512 associates.
