    In this article WMT M A man shops for clothes in Macy's department store in Herald Square, New York.Trevor Collens | AFP | Getty ImagesCrumpled piles of clothes. Unpacked boxes of inventory. Half-empty shelves. And employees rushing through aisles to grab items for online orders. That's what some consumers are finding as they shop in stores again.  Retailers adapted stores and workforces as more sales moved online during the pandemic. Portions of sales floors became staging areas for curbside pickup. Employees got trained to pack online orders, as well as help with customers in stores. For some retailers, that has turned a store's appearance into an afterthought. Bare spots on shelves and unkempt displays at Walmart prompted a research firm to downgrade its stock earlier this year. Macy's, the storied department store that now must fend off internet savvy rivals, has also faced ridicule for its poor presentation. The coming months may be especially crucial for retailers as they try to woo shoppers back to stores, where sales tend to be more profitable. Consumers have money they've stashed away after saving on commuting...
    As McDonald’s works on closing some of its locations within Walmart stores, the retailer is looking to put local businesses and others into place. McDonald’s has gradually been closing locations at Walmart stores over the years but will keep a presence within about 150 Walmarts. Walmart spokeswoman Molly Blakeman said that in many instances the McDonald’s closures came about when leases ended. The retail giant is taking the opportunity to get local businesses like barbershops and tool-rental facilities into the leased spaces. It is also looking at other food options, like Domino’s. “We are excited to continue to bring in new businesses that make sense for our customers and their changing needs,” Blakeman said.

    Customers wait outside of a Best Buy store in downtown Toronto, Ontario on November 23, 2020 to pick up their online orders.Geoff Robbins | AFP | Getty Images Best Buy is testing a new annual membership program that comes with perks like tech support, free shipping and extended warrantees on smartphones or other purchases. The consumer electronics retailer said in a corporate blog post Wednesday that the program is available at some stores in Iowa, Oklahoma and eastern Pennsylvania. Later this month, it will expand to stores in Minnesota, North Carolina and Tennessee. By the end of the month, it will be piloted in about 60 stores. The program, called Best Buy Beta, will cost $199.99 per year or $179.99 per year for customers who have the retailer's credit card.

    Walmart has hired Brandon Maxwell as creative director of its elevated fashion brands.Walmart Walmart wants to make a name for itself in fashion. It has tapped Brandon Maxwell, a designer who dresses celebrities from Lady Gaga to Michelle Obama, to raise its reputation. Maxwell will oversee the discounter's elevated brands, Scoop and Free Assembly, as creative director. The 36-year-old designer lives in New York City. He has been a judge on Bravo's "Project Runway" and designs a luxury label sold by retailers like Neiman Marcus with items that cost hundreds or thousands of dollars apiece. By working with Walmart, however, Maxwell said he can fit more budgets and reach more shoppers — including friends and family in his hometown of Longview, Texas. His first full collections will be available in spring 2022. "I'm not a person who believes that fashion is just something on the surface. I believe it is a way to say to the world 'This is who I am' and that has power to it," he told CNBC. "Being able to bring that to so many different...
    A new report by the Environmental Investigation Agency (EIA) shows that grocery stores, including Walmart, are leaking greenhouse gases like hydrofluorocarbons (HFC) into the air. The report found that many are leaking a refrigerant that’s dangerous for climate change. Source: SciNews/YouTube Leaking Havoc: Exposing Your Supermarket’s Invisible Climate Pollution looked at Walmart and other large grocery chains in the Washington, D.C. area, including Maryland and Virginia. The months-long investigation found that half of the stores were leaking refrigerants. EIA camera’s detected refrigerant leaking onto products in a store, in one instance. In the report, 60% of Walmart stores had an HFC refrigerant leaking. Refrigerants can be managed proactively, but a lack of regulation on HFCs doesn’t incentivize stores to do so. According to the Washington Post, the Environmental Protection Agency put out a public call in February 2021 for companies to report production and import data for HFCs. Environmental experts are hopeful that the December passage of the American Innovation and Manufacturing (AIM) Act, which says the EPA has to phase out production and import of HFCs, will help mitigate...

    New York (CNN Business)Walmart is giving its massive stores a makeover, with a redesign that mimics its app so shoppers can more easily find what they're looking for.In a push to get more people to download its app and use it while shopping (read: not Amazon's app), Walmart is encouraging shoppers to download it prior to entering to assist in navigating the store, search for more options online and pay once finished.

    Walmart is partnering with grocery delivery platform Instacart in yet another bid to rival Amazon and its growing offline network of Whole Foods stores and same- and one-day Prime delivery. The partnership, first reported on Tuesday by CNBC, means Walmart customers in four pilot markets spanning California and Oklahoma can now choose Walmart’s grocery options when putting together an Instacart order. Instacart already works with major grocery chains like Albertsons, Aldi, Costco, Kroger, and Target, as well as smaller chain stores like Wegmans and pharmacies like CVS. The platform also has an existing partnership with Walmart-owned Sam’s Club that will remain intact. The addition of Walmart — Amazon’s primary rival that has been working to establish its own grocery delivery network — should help both the retailer and Instacart fend off competition from Amazon-owned Whole Foods and the e-commerce giant’s Amazon Fresh and Prime Pantry services. Thanks to its Prime membership and fast-growing logistics network, Amazon is able to link its Whole Foods stores with its Prime shipping benefits, allowing for all sorts of grocery shopping and delivery...
    MARSHALL, Minn. (AP) — A couple in Minnesota wore red face masks emblazoned with swastikas to a Walmart in a video posted on social media. Police were called Saturday to the Walmart in Marshall, in the southwest part of the state, on a report that two shoppers were wearing the mask with the symbol used by the Nazi Party. Another shopper, Raphaela Mueller, who is a vicar of a southwest Minnesota parish, posted video on Facebook of the man and woman being confronted by others in the store, the Star Tribune reported. “If you vote for (Democratic presidential candidate Joe) Biden, you’re going to be living in Nazi Germany, that’s what it’s going to be like,” the woman with the swastika mask said in the video as her husband loaded bags of groceries into a shopping cart. Mueller said when she first saw the couple, she felt “nauseated and I wanted to cry, which I ended up doing.” “I was speechless and shocked. I have heard of (things like this) happening in other places but I never thought I would...
