Walmart Is Promising to Keep These Items Cheaper Than Ever
Though Walmart has seen sales rise this year, it's rolling back savings to bolster a return to normalcy—and that means good news for budget-conscious shoppers.
John Furner, CEO of the chain's U.S. branch, said during an earnings call this week that Walmart would keep up its strategy of offering up more Rollbacks and price cuts on the items shoppers want as they venture outside of their homes and into the summer sun, according to CNBC. Think fresh clothes, outdoor equipment, teeth-whitening kits, and more.
Current Rollbacks on Walmart's website include items like Burberry perfume, a Badminton set, cotton T-shirts, Crest 3D Whitestrips, engine oil, facial hair remover, outdoor grills . . . and even a hoverboard.
Amid the news of price increases on summer grocery staples this year, Walmart's strategy presents a nice change of pace for shoppers. It's also a far cry from the drastic price changes, empty shelves, and purchasing limits from a year ago at this time.
Doug McMillon, Walmart's CEO, said people just "want to get out and shop." Budgets will be important, so it's crucial for the chain to undercut other retailers in order to get shoppers inside in its doors.
