The Irish giant is planning to open new stores across the country to expand its existing portfolio of stores.
The new 7,500 locations will include some of its flagship stores and other stores in smaller towns and cities.
Walmart will operate at a reduced level, but will still have some stores in the country.
The company said the new locations will be able to be expanded to a wider audience and in a shorter timeframe than its existing stores.
The new stores are part of the company’s plan to bring the number of stores in Northern Ireland and the Republic to 1,200 by 2020.
It is expected that the first 7,600 will be located in Dublin, while the rest of the stores will be in Belfast, Cork, Galway, Leitrim and Donegal.
The news comes after the company confirmed that it had made an €80m investment in the local economy in recent years.
Its new Dublin location will be opened as a part of its planned expansion to Northern Ireland.
