On February 1st NH Wal-Mart Stores Will Be Changing Their Name
According to USA Today, on February 1st Wal-Mart Stores will be changing its name! It won't be a drastic change. In fact, I probably wouldn't have even noticed this change unless someone pointed it out to me. They will be removing the hyphen from the name as well as the word "stores".
The reason you may ask? Well, a great deal of their business is now in e-commerce so they want to change the name to reflect their emphasis on online shopping. The new name "Walmart" is addressing all customers not just those willing to shop in the physical store.
But haven't we all just been calling it Walmart for years? Or if you're like me, "Wally World"?
