Walmart stores are being “optimized” with redesigned aisles, self-checkout kiosks and app-aided directories.
The retail giant is redesigning stores to mirror its online shopping experience in real life – and to get more customers to download its app.
Walmart’s redesign will launch in 200 Supercenters by the end of the year, and close to 1,000 by the end of 2021. The retailer’s chief customer officer and an executive vice president, Janey Whiteside, says the redesign is intended to streamline how a large group of people navigate stores. It was inspired also by airports, she said.
