BIG changes are coming to Walmart stores!
Do you find it hard to get in-and-out of stores quickly? Walmart has announced plans to for a new store design meant to give customers a faster shopping experience!
These plans include contactless payment options and self-checkout kiosks in all stores. Select locations will also have Scan & Go available for an even more streamlined checkout process.
Plus, the new store designs are centered around digital shopping experiences. Shoppers will be encouraged to download and use the app to help them find products, use store maps, and more.
The new layout will feature clear signage and dedicated sections for electronics, toys, and more – allowing shoppers to easily find the products they’re searching for.
While these changes were already being planned before the coronavirus pandemic, this new design will also help limit contact between customers and employees.
Select stores have already tested out this new concept, and Walmart will be applying the design to more stores this fall to get more customer and associate feedback before finalizing the design. They expect to be in around 200 locations by the end of January, and around 1,000 by the end of their next fiscal year.
