Massive Changes Coming To Walmart
These plans are a sign that Walmart is once again investing in physical stores after focusing in recent years on online sales. Walmart operates nearly 5,000 stores across the United States.
In 2016, Walmart announced plans to slow down the opening of new stores to invest in online efforts to compete with places like Amazon.
Walmart hasn't opened up a new store since November 2021, according to ABC News.
The new stores will be designed with sustainability in mind, officials say. They will include more energy-efficient equipment and lighting, lower-impact refrigerants and more. The company is also developing a coast-to-coast network of affordable electric vehicle fast-charging stations
"We’re proud that improving our stores also has a tangible impact in the communities we serve. What a win it is to invest in America, grow our business and move toward a more sustainable future – all at the same time.
