Walmart seeing new shoppers

In a recent piece at the Dallas Morning News, they look at how some higher end shoppers have begun to frequent WalMart in these trying economic times. Although many of the shoppers aren't ready to admit they're WalMart customers, WalMart is taking steps to ensure they stick around after the recession is over.

  1. I have seen a huge ancrease in the wal Mart near our home. Still a bad name amongst my collegues, Wal-Mart has worked hard to change their image. Additionallly, they are doing more and more for sustainability. They plan to use 100% renewable energy and operate as a zero waste corporation. Being the largest retailer in the world, they have a chance to make real change!
