MISSISSAUGA, Ontario — Wal-Mart Canada on Thursday said it will continue a national rollout of its supercenters in Canada this year, planning to build more than a dozen new stores by the end of its fiscal year in January. In addition, Wal-Mart said it would expand eight or nine existing discount stores to the supercenter format, and relocate two discount stores as supercenters in their current markets. Included in the retailer’s 25-27 new projects this year is its first supercenter in British Columbia, which opened last month in Duncan. Wal-Mart Canada, a division of the Bentonville, Ark.-based retailer, opened its first Canadian supercenters in 2006 and currently operates 32 locations in three provinces.
