Walmart Inc. (NYSE: WMT) has announced plans to invest more than $96 million in Indiana this year. The retailer says the effort will include the remodeling of 19 stores, as well as the launch and continued expansion of several "customer-focused innovations."

The investment quadruples the amount Walmart committed to Indiana stores last year. Some of the innovations, such as online grocery pickup and the Walmart pickup towers have already been introduced at some Hoosier locations.

"Walmart is committed to convenience, and we look forward to expanding these technologies and more in 2019."

Walmart plans to remodel the following Indiana locations:
