Walmart plans remerchandising campaign

BY HBSDEALER Staff

In an effort to recapture lost customers, Walmart will launch a promotional “It’s Back” merchandise campaign next month, according to an article in the Wall Street Journal

The theme of the in-store promotion will be a remerchandising effort to return a number of items that had been removed from Walmart’s shelves. Fishing tackle, bolts of fabric and other “basic” products will broaden the assortment, ending Walmart’s failed strategy to appeal to more upscale shoppers, according to the article.  

Duncan Mac Naughton, the former chief merchandising officer of Wal-Mart’s Canadian business, will oversee the effort as Walmart’s new head merchant in the United States.

When Walmart stated "its back" It was a hope it related to the days when they supported US Manufactures and prided itself on selling products made in the USA. Walmart it appears are always trying to reinvent themselves. 2 or 3 years ago they "lost thier way" and went back to price and rollbacks, it is assumed that did not work because they tried to woo the upper echelons of our society, presumably they felt everybody else was penniless because they were out of work. It seems the monied blue bloods failed to recognize the opportunities and the guys who have plenty of time on thier hands want to go fishing. Maybe if they just thought about buying more US made products, thier up market idea might have had a chance. Mr. Sam Walton knew a thing or two he bought the products from the folks who were his customers. Walmart has a long way to go before the Chinese start flooding thier stores. God bless America.
