    Walmart’s decision to locate its Eastern Canadian Distribution Centre here in Moncton is a both welcome news and a recognition of the city and province’s growth advantage. The importance of supply chains is well understood after the past year of upheaval. Moncton and its vast supply chain apparatus of distribution centres, excellent roads, rail connection, air links as well as top calibre people have helped keep the region going, said Premier of New Brunswick, Blaine Higgs.

      Hi Kate,

      Great to hear an opinion from Moncton and glad you’re excited about this news. You’re bang on about supply chains issues coming to the forefront over the last year and a half or so. We’re still feeling that pain to an extent, but moves like this will sure help alleviate that, going forward.
