Retailers, consumers and prices
Instead of being able to buy the items online, Walmart.com browsers can check to see if the products are in stock at a store near them.
Walmart.com spokesman Ravi Jariwala said the new feature will help consumers save time and plan their shopping trips before they hit a Wal-Mart store. He also said allowing website visitors to check if a product is in stock at a local store has become one of the most frequently used features on its website.
The products that Wal-Mart has added to its website are actually the ones that have been driving Wal-Mart’s U.S. sales this year.
