NO there is no Walmart in Juneau, it is proposed and not open. There is a Walmart in KETCHIKAN. They run a van from the dock for the 15 min. shuttle ride. The van is white and a small sign on the door. Pick up is to the right of the visitor center from the ship.

Can you have pictures from a digital camera printed in an hour at the Walmart in Alaska?

We were just there and Walmart has opened in Juneau as we passed it on the way to the helicopters. The people made a joke about the town turning out for the opening.

It was no where near opening when I was there mid May. And it still isn't listed on the Walmart home page. They must have really speeded up???

It was an abandoned K-mart--probably just needed some paint and to be stocked. But, I think it would be in the Juneau Empire if it was open, and it's not.

We were there last week ,and I was told by our tour guide that Juneau doesn't have one yet. There is a abandon K mart that has been closed for awhile. I have to reaffirm what others have posted, Ketchikan is the place. We saw a shuttle van returning ship employees to the dock with a walmart sign in the window

I remember in Juneau a shuttle bus comes right up to the cruise ship dock and takes people to Walmart. It is free. The Europeans were craxy for this trip! It may have been Ketchikan so check it out at both ports when you get off the ship!

The Walmart is in Ketchican. In Juneau there is a big Fred Myers store very close to the old KMart, I believe there is a crew shuttle here also. Its a pretty big store, very comparable to Walmart

How often is the return? Do they come back every 1/2 or something?

Yes they run about every half hour. They are very popular with ship crew and can really pack people into those vans.
