Georgia Unfiltered caught up with the Wal Mart store manager in Union City to discuss their preparations for the thousands of people expected to descend upon Georgia this September for the Tomorrowworld music festival.
Tomorrowworld is a three-day event taking place at the Bouckaert family farms in Chattahoochee Hills, Georgia.
The Wal Mart Supercenter, located at 4735 Jonesboro Road in Union City (just 22 minutes from the festival site), will be the last stop for many ticket holders before they enter Tomorrowworld for the weekend.
Wal Mart Union City management tells Georgia Unfiltered that the entire store will be ready for the people of Tomorrowworld when they arrive the morning of 25 September.
They are stocking up now on tents, pillows, wheeled carts, baby wipes, glow sticks, fresh fruit. Store management says they'll be Tomorrowworld ready.
According to the store manager, the Union City Wal Mart experienced an increase in sales last year during the week of Tomorrowworld; selling out of some products, and having to redirect suppliers to restock to keep up with shopper demand.
This year they say they'll reset the store and have all the needs for Tomorrowworld in one location for quick and easy access.
Tomorrowworld festival-goers are expected to arrive in town, Thursday, 25 September. Dreamville, the Tomorrowworld campground, opens that morning at 10AM.
The Union City Wal Mart Supercenter is open 24 hours.
