There are close to 5,000 Walmarts in the US. To get a sense of what Walmart is planning, they always do a test run at the stores closest to the Home Office. Store #100 (right across the street from the Home Office) no longer has door greeters at the front, they’re being phased out. Store #5260 (Rogers, AR) is also experimented upon. Store #1 had self checkouts, which I believe have been ripped out. They are currently implementing a plan to rip out self-checkouts from all Walmarts.

Interesting.

Having used self-checkout at some store (forgotten) in the past, I am glad that WM is not implementing them nationwide. I hated them.

We all know all the greeters & they know us. It will be sad to see them go.

We are a small town of 4k in a rural area of under 30k. Any segment dropped by WM means an hour’s drive to obtain the item/service at a reasonable cost. It has been over 20 years since there was a sewing shop here, for example. There is one other grocery store and no one else sells housewares or domestics. Personally, we buy a lot of items online and sometimes, we purchase online from WM and it is delivered to the store.

OTOH, if WM stops stocking something, it means some entrepreneur has an opportunity.
