Futuristic animations of the D.C. Wal-Mart stores

Wal-Mart is the country’s largest retailer, so many D.C. residents have shopped there even though there are no stores in the District yet.

But in the interest in giving shoppers a look at what its stores will look like when they open, the chain has created futuristic-looking three-dimensional animations of four of their six planned stores, planned for Georgia Avenue, Fort Totten, Skyland Shopping Center and East Capitol Street.

Beware: the videos are long, at around six minutes or more. They contain a lot of fake people, plants and even voices. There also isn’t a lot to recognize from these sites as they exist today and the music sounds like it might be from an episode of Star Trek.

But at least the videos give us a good idea of how the buildings’ exteriors and design will look from the street once they are complete. Take a look.
