Walmart is planning on a huge increase in e-commerce sales next year:
“The retailing behemoth reiterated its focus on its e-commerce business at its annual investor meeting in Bentonville, Arkansas. It has started offering free two-day shipping and plans to roughly double the locations for shipping online grocery orders and slash the number of physical stores.“

E-commerce is no longer a sideline for Walmart. Instead, Walmart is branding itself as a truly omnichannel retailer. If you haven’t paid much attention to Walmart’s online sales division, you don’t have much of a choice but to do so now.
