Cue some leftist commie ranting about how this is just crumbs compared to what Walmart makes in profits, and how it's not enough. Commies can never have enough of other people's money.

Good for WalMart for having the savings to use for this. A stark comparison to the airlines who seem to go belly up after 8 seconds of low passenger volume.

Must keep shifting that Chinese produce. This adds a whole new level of meaning to the expression "shop till you drop".

I think they should make people order online then only delivery or pickup on the street. Packing people in the store and lines is nuts.
