Report: Walmart reorganizing U.S. store ops

BY Marianne Wilson

Walmart is simplifying its U.S. business as it looks to respond more quickly to the accelerating pace of change in the retail industry.

The discounter is consolidating its six divisional groups into four and its 44 U.S. regional groups to 36, reported Bloomberg.

“Our last field restructure was several years ago and our business has changed over that time,” spokesman Kory Lundberg said in a statement to Bloomberg. “The structure we are putting in place will help improve communication and execution, streamline decision-making and help us accelerate our pace of change.”

Walmart should never have withdrawn the price matching from competitors. I shop much LESS at Walmart now because of this.
