The Halifax Regional Municipality says the new Chipotles stores are expected to open in the fall of 2019.
In the east, Walmart will expand its store with an online grocery business.
It will have more than 400 stores in Canada, including more than 100 in Nova Scotia.
The company says it will open more than 20 new stores in the Halifax Region this year, with plans to open additional locations in Halifax in the spring of 2020.
Walmart has also announced plans to expand its distribution and distribution network in Canada.
