Walmart has informed managers of its 5,000 U.S. stores that they can now match prices with Amazon.com and other online retailers.
Reuters reports that Greg Foran, head of the company’s U.S. business told them the directive was meant to formalize a practice that was already in place at many Walmart stores.
“About half of the stores were doing it anyway.”
Normally, we wouldn’t report something like this, but with the big Black Friday sales day just over two weeks away, you might want to keep this in mind, and check Amazon and other retailers before heading out to Walmart on the big day. You could save a few extra bucks.
