Is it a lot of people already been vaccinated. Now we're at about one point. Seven million shots a day so we have a ways to go as a country. General vivek murthy has pointed to survey data showing that more people would be motivated to roll up their sleeves if their employers gave time off to get the shot and recover from it so employers not only have an opportunity to increase fascination rates.

"Okay ellison aubrey. Since the new mass guidance from the cdc came out different groups. Industries have responded. Let's start with businesses. Sure i mean. Many of the big retailers are dropping their masking requirements including walmart. Costco starbucks walmart says. It supports employees. Who may choose to continue to wear masks. Even if they're fully vaccinated and all of these chains are encouraging people who are not vaccinated to continue to mask now over the weekend cd. Rochelle walinsky was pressed about the new policy and she cautioned. That masks will be with us for a while. Likely said a lot of people are not vaccinated and they should be masking in many settings. He or she is on nbc. This was not permission to shed masks for everybody everywhere. This was really science driven individual assessment of your risk. And now we all need to work together and cdc is hard at work now saying what does this mean for schools for travel for camps for businesses. I think what she's getting at here. Mattie is there is more guidance to come now. They've shifted this strategy unmasking. A lot of the other guidance for what to do in the office what to do in schools will need to get looked at again reviewed now given how hard it is to police the new policy. I mean it's hard to know who is or isn't vaccinated. This really just comes down to the honor system and dr walinsky ask people to be honest with themselves because people who are not vaccinated are putting themselves at risk. Yeah i i mean alison. This was the part kind of blew me away. I mean this puts the burden on individuals to do the right thing by themselves and also by others. And i i don't know i don't think we have evidence that an honor system will work in the us especially with the stakes being this high. Well there definitely are critics. Marc perron is president of the united food and commercial workers international union which represents about one point three million frontline retail and grocery store workers. He says the guy insists confusing. And that the cdc has failed to consider how it will impact essential workers who face frequent exposure to people who are not vaccinated. And some refuse to wear masks. I think that the guidance should busy. People should wear masks at least until we get to that herd immunity number. We're not there yet. We only have about forty percent of the population fully vaccinated and i. I think that we could have waited another couple of months. And there's also similar concern from nurses mattie leaders of the national nurses united which is the largest union of registered nurses in the.

Marketing is happy to go through a lot of my advice there but at a really high level spirit. He was a platform for brands to build. Engaged communities of influential people and that ranges from social media influencers to customers fans experts and more we are actually one of the first influence of platforms back when we started in two thousand thirteen. And now we're fortunate to have over four hundred brands clients from bigger names like walmart and samsung to e com leaders like purple glossy and hellofresh and actually in our last few years our focus has really been tightly on ecommerce. Where over thirty percent of our clients are on shop by ranging from billion dollar market leaders to five-person companies. You know for shop by really if you kinda summarize it down what we saw for you is building an in house influence a program that drives real are y. And that could mean anything from for. If you're a novice setting up the and organizing the initial program helping you source the first fifty influencers and tracking promo codes and affiliate links to generate the first sales or for advanced users it community something as robust as customizing a complete crm solution with integrated workflows across hundreds of influencers generating thousands of pieces of content.

The other day about a local business that you wouldn't perceive to be. Local was an article written by a Subway franchisee who said you see Subway and you think national business. But in essence, most Subways are owned by franchisees. Local people in your town, who may run one or two or three or ten, but they're local businesses, they hire local employees, they pay no taxes. They live local, the people want McDonald's just down the street from me. It's a local business and I understand their frustration because through all the pandemic as we've been encouraging people to shop local and get away from the big brands from the big chains off depends on if it's a franchise or not.

"When you think of a Walmart what comes to mind. . Probably, not , that it's some tech savvy subscription company but tomorrow, , the retail giant is launching its subscription service called Walmart plus and some see that as a player take background from the company's big rival Amazon Dot. . com. . I'm here with Jason Del Rey senior correspondent here at recode Jason thanks for being with us. . Teddy. . So, , how big a deal is the launch? ? Of Walmart plus. . So we'll see how the launch actually goes off, , but the idea of Walmart loss and the fact that Walmart after all these years is finally putting paid membership out there in a big way that is a big deal. . Walmart's trying to lean into what they do really well, , and that is mainly really really low prices on groceries. . So the core of Walmart plus. . Is a same day or next day delivery service <hes> focusing on. . Fresh groceries that said the idea is that you beyond groceries. . To. . Many. . Many of the Nadine, , most popular products that you would find in a Walmart store. . I think Walmart. . Has said you know a selection of over one hundred thousand items, , but on top of that. . Walmart. . Plus is hoping to add perks that maybe Amazon can't match. . So one of them is at launch. . Discounts on gas at one gas stations and other partnering gas stations. . It's something like no more than five cents a gallon. . But if you're someone who drives a lot shops at Walmart. . Over the course of the year maybe that makes a difference to you. . And over time while they're not talking about details I'd expect to see. . Other. . Perks that may be are more Walmart like and more geared toward sort of the long-term Walmart customer than. . Some of the other perks we see in prime such as you know, , prime music, , for example. . So the sounds like Disney plus it feels and looks like Amazon prime. . But like taking a step back here, , why is Walmart doing any of this? ? Why is it getting into the subscription business in the first place? ? So I think there's a couple reasons. . Starting really with Amazon prime big companies have trained basically everyone in this country to start consuming via subscriptions. . So of course, you , have prime with more than one, , hundred, , fifty, , million paying customers around the world. . But you also have the rise of. . Subscription services like Netflix. . So like spotify and the like and what you find is often when you subscribe to something, , you want to get the most out of it. . Right. . So what does that mean for Amazon Amazon that means prime customers spend more and shop more frequently than Amazon than nine prime customers do. . They also often price compare less. . So they're sort of like absorbed into this Amazon only World Walmart is trying to build sort of deeper relationships. . They probably would call it with their customers, , make them great customers, , and then with their customers make sure you know that this sort of locks them in. . So they don't Fly Amazon in the first place. . There's a couple of other reasons for fast. . Delivery is really expensive same day next day delivery. . It's really expensive. . So Walmart's hoping to maybe subsidize some of that expense through these subscription fees, , and then one of the last things I'll mention is just that I think they do feel whether they admitted or not that they need to do something as an alternative to Prime I reported earlier this year that more than half of Walmart's top spending families are now Amazon prime customers maybe they can win some of them back with this. . It is about twenty one dollars cheaper a year. . And there are trade-offs but maybe they went some back and maybe more importantly they just sort of stem the tide of. . Existing customers who haven't switched to prime yet from going there in the first place. .

I don't know if I've ever really shoplifted but I shoplifted from Walmart and they was a shoplift look. I'm not going to completely explain away what I did, which was stealing, which is a sin. But. A. IS WALMART WHO cares but B I stole at of convenience not out of like I'm GonNa Steal something I can't afford to buy here. So doing the self-checkout and I had a bunch of stuff was buying a bunch of groceries and everything. A bunch of US went on a shopping run now is buying myself a silly hat. was like a nine dollar hat. And I scanned it last and there was no tag scan. What I should have done according to the Walmart. Is Go get one with a tag to scan us like. Behind you. Yeah it's like I'm not GonNa do that I'm just going to put it in my bag. And pretend like I bought it and that worked and I recently found out and boy let me tell you the thrill walking out of there. And I was just like like even when like the security guard standing by there. Like I'm a white guy pushing forty I I'll throw a fit. Seeing my bag and they'll work. And that's Society's fault. Not My fault but anyway. But then I read up about how apparently Walmart uses some like Ai. To use like a lot of microphones, these microphones cameras with like artificial intelligence, reading it, and apparently you know it's one of these things where they sign some hundred million dollar contract multiple hundred, million dollar, and the big secret is that it's horrible and doesn't work at all. Which I definitely saw because I just took something and walked out with it and nothing happened. I mean he was a nine dollar. He tried to walk out with the with the thirty inch flat screen baby. That's sure. It might be differentiated. So say. I thought this was great when I first got it and then I put it on like when it was actually cold. Yeah it's not so good. It's a very cheap hat..

"I'm Chris Sale with me today. Our Man in Rhode Island it's Brian for Brian good to see you. Chris How's it going? It's going pretty well. We've got some restaurant news. We've got some energy news. We're going to start though with retail because Walmart, which last time I checked was already doing pretty well with the ECOMMERCE Walmart is partnering up with Shop. Affi- to expand its third party marketplace site. And you were talking earlier today. This seems like a good move for both it's the proverbial win win, but in terms of stock prices. It's moving shop up about five percent today. Yeah these are two companies that are just having stellar years when you see yet another announcement like this, come out of a shop, fi easy to understand why so Walmart is essentially opening up its Walmart Dot com platform, which is you highlighted is just seeing explosive growth last quarter, seventy four percent sales growth over the prior year, so they're really having a big success, but they're going to allow shop. Users and there's more than a million of them right now to essentially seamlessly offer their products and sell them directly on Walmart. Dot Com. So I think this is a big win for both companies. It certainly broadens Walmart's product. Offering also gives him a nice pr win for supporting small and medium-sized businesses, obviously a big win for shop, Affi- further solidifying them as the Goto place, if you are a small or medium-sized business and want to. Beef up your e commerce capabilities and Walmart did say initially limiting this. Their plan is to have twelve hundred businesses started up by the end of the year, but could easily see this being expanded down the road. Yeah, and it's you know I was thinking about this earlier, because every once in a while, we'll get you know e mail from listeners or or comments in the fool, live chat that kind of thing, and and every once in a while you get something along the lines of what are you guys like shop if I so much? and. It's. It's deals like this like. It's just they're. They're focused their ability to continue to execute. And this is. This is a massive partnership. In the wake of The recent partnership they did with facebook as well and it's. Sherifi is sort of establishing itself as you indicated as sort of like this, this Goto Platform. To me the thing that put Chiappa fi on my radar was when several years ago Amazon essentially said we give up. We can't compete against shop FI- If you're on our platform, we suggest you transitioned over to shop a FI. There's no bigger boost in the arm or vote for another platform than Amazon, throwing in the towel against you in the e commerce world and to your point, we've also now seen facebook announcing a big partnership with them. Also has a deals with them and now and now Walmart, so shop. A fight is clearly the top dog, and that's why we like it Chris. Doug Macmillan the CEO at Walmart it's. It's pretty remarkable A. Methodical investments he and his team have made in ECOMMERCE. You know five six years after. A really good stretch of time when you indicate that they really should have been doing this a lot sooner, but. I'm impressed by how they have made up for lost time. Yeah the same I agree with you there. They should have made those investments fifteen years prior. But. Hey, they did recognize..

That's the sound of California's newly modified bug Zappers will a larger new models. Be Able to take care. Sure of the state's coyote population for good from the onion and onion public radio. This is the topical. I'm Leslie Price and I'm going to speak very slowly so you don't get too confused about today's news. Stay with the topic is presented by cash APP. The number one finance finance APP in the APP store. It's the simplest way to send and receive money and the easiest way to bribe. NFL referees into not calling obvious. Pass interference in the two thousand nineteen NFC championship unshipped game allowing the Los Angeles Rams to advance to the Super Bowl. Oh man that was rich. Download cache APP today and get ten dollars when you sign up using Promo Code topical under increasing and pressure from Anti Gun activists stop selling firearms. Walmart is finally taking action. The corporation announced that all locations will now restrict gun purchases only to customers immerse who promised to use them at one of Walmart's competitors. OPR reporter Remmy Bergelin has been following the story and joins me now Leslie so tell us what prompted this decision by Walmart Art. Well there's been public pressure on retailers for a while now to stop selling guns or at least to make it harder to get one but this is the biggest step forward Walmer has taken yet a spokesperson for the company. Doug Marshall said yesterday that the increase in mass shootings has the retail giant concerned. That another massacre could happen at any one of their four thousand stores across the country. Their hope hope is that this new policy will offer Walmart Shoppers Protection by diverting a potential gunman toward any number of other department store and sporting goods chains. Here's what Marshall had to say. After speaking you can with our customers and consulting our own consciences Walmart has decided that we can no longer stand by as the gun. Violence in this country spreads across our stores so starting today we will no longer be selling any firearms at any Walmart locations unless the buyer assures us and is able to convincingly prove that they'll use it somewhere else like a home mm depot or a Kohl's just not Sam's Club because that's actually part of us to interesting. What's the reaction been from gun control activists? Well it's a mix. Walmart is being applauded for taking a step but some say they aren't going far enough for example how to some improve. They're going to use a gun. Somewhere else will walmart start asking customers to see. A manifesto lasted about one of their rivals or a specific list of targets before they purchase a gun. It remains to be seen. Well that makes sense but at its core the seems like a pretty ambitious and bold action on Walmart's Walmart part it does. It's easy to imagine how this can save lives. Someone comes in wanting to buy a gun walmart. Says you can only use the somewhere else and they say oh no I want into us here at this Wal Mart and they walk away empty handed. That's a good thing. And how likely is it that this plan actually protects people from mass shootings. Well there hasn't been a ton of research go off of but some experts say that casualties of mass shootings could potentially decrease gunman chooses say at K.. Mart or sears. Those retailers have very few customers so it doesn't seem likely that will follow their lead and taking action. Yes in fact Bass. Pro Shops has already announced that they will go one step further and making sure their customers are safe. They're offering anyone who purchases a semiautomatic rifle at one of their stores of Free Twenty Five Dollars Walmart Gift Card to steer them away from bass pro stores purchased was sounds like consumers will really want to keep their eyes peeled field for the store. That's offering the best deal if they don't WanNa die. Thank you thank you.

"We're joined now by Bloomberg Business Reporter. Sarah Halzack do you sense that. Yesterday's decision was mostly prompted by outside pressures or by internal employee pressures after the multiple shootings combination. The combination of the two for this particular spasm of violence really landed right at Walmart doorstep right. The shooting took place within one of its stores. And it's important to remember that only a few days earlier Walmart had suffered another shooting at one of its Mississippi stores where one employee shot and killed two other employees. So Oh i think this is feeling particularly close to home and of course outside momentum on this issue does appear to be changing Walmart the largest single retailer of ammunition in the country by market share. But from your perspective are firearm sales. Kind of broadly including AMMO. Is it a major part of Walmart's business or is it a pretty small one. That dropping doesn't really impact the bottom on much. Yeah it's a pretty small part of their overall sales and bottom line so in that sense. This is not a terribly difficult decision right. I think where it gets difficult. Is that add. Walmart's heritage is so much in rural America. It's founder Sam. Walton was avid hunter. In fact like part of the Walmart lower is that he chose North West Arkansas in part because it had access to four different hunting seasons right. It was near the state lines of Arkansas Missouri Oklahoma. Kansas he could hunt everywhere he wanted. So this this is really something that's in the DNA of Walmart and has been for some time and so I think doing anything that might alienate a rural shopper. Or positive is moving away from that. Ethos is the difficult decision for Walmart not to be too cynical here but one of the arguments kind of I don't know if he wants a arguments for Walmart but certainly one of the characteristics of Walmart is that in a lot of those rural communities it it is the only retailer so it's not that you've got ten different places. You could buy a hunting rifle from Walmart. That's still applies right and a lot of cases. I think that's absolutely right and I think that's what we see over and over again with these sort of collisions of politics in retail is the at the end of the day. Shoppers end up choosing the most convenient option. This the thing that is you know has the best price or is the easiest store for them to get to. And I think these conflagrations end up sort of shaping their purchasing decisions for only a very short period of time and particularly with Walmart. where it is you know such a destination for all kinds of purchases as a big box store and as you said is often the anchor of rural community retail? I don't anticipate this having a big impact on their sales. Can you help me square one thing here. So walmarts. Basically saying on certain items that it's decided to stop selling that's really public policy policy issues. The reason for example when it talks about some of the munition it says yes this can be used for hunting rifles but in theory not even in theory and reality it also could be used in these ar fifteen eighteen clips. You know the these larger clip. So that's why we're not selling them anymore but at the same time they're gonNA sell through their existing inventory if Walmart thinks this stuff shouldn't be sold why is continuing to sell it. It's a good question and one that I'm I'm not sure that I can answer. I think that it's probably just trying to do the prudent thing for its shareholders and kind of moved oof through that inventory and hope that the broader gesture of saying. Hey this is the direction we're going. We'll be satisfying enough for consumers who are looking king for it to take action on this issue. Were you surprised. At least I was surprised. Let me put it that way. And then I will ask if you were in the letter that Doug Macmillan put out yesterday after laying out all the steps that Walmart was plan to take he also made some public policy prescriptions and basically said hey congress we would like you to close on gun show loopholes for example in terms of private sales and some other things. Were you surprised that he took a step beyond just what Walmart can do with Walmart. I was surprised by that. In fact that was the most surprising thing to me the announcement because the specific steps it took are pretty consistent consistent with the kinds of gradual incremental things. We've seen Walmart do on this issue in the past so you know in two thousand fifteen stop selling assault rifles and twenty eighteen raise as the minimum age to buy firearms. He's kind of gradual things right. But the policy prescriptions. Were interesting and this is the place where I have the most questions. What I really wonder is is this the last time I am? We're GONNA hear anything forceful from Walmart on this issue or is it really going to start talking about this issue more even when it feeds from the headlines and if so that could be really powerful. It's the fortune one company right. And having that voice in the mix might provide a new and important source of pressure for lawmakers on this topic will lawmakers and other companies right because Of New York Times Andrew. Ross sorkin argument on this with Walmart has always been yes. It could stop selling certain sorts of ammunition and firearms which it's now doing but it also is a huge partner to other accompanies on say the Fortune Twenty lists big financial companies credit card companies etc.. If Walmart really really wanted to put its thumb on the scale here it could pressure its partners to stop doing business with other gun retailers and manufacturers sure it could absolutely do that but you know enough could happen just by the sheer sample of what it's doing because it scale is so massive have you know I think back to Several years ago when the economy was heating up and Walmart raised. Its minimum wage right. It moved in that direction and said Hey. The labor market's tight. This is something we've you've got to do to recruit the best talent and we're now at a point where some of my colleagues reported back in August retail wages are at fifteen year high and Walmart is part of the reason in for that. Is that everybody else by the sheer example of Walmart and the competition of Walmart felt pressure to step up their game on wages including target and others and so surely by Walmart taking this action. Yes it could put direct pressure on partners to join it in this effort. But it's your example. Could do plenty to sort sort of change where corporate America's going on this issue for decision by Walmart from a competitive standpoint. Obviously good for the local. You know small mom pop gun dealer. Who who you know in the same block or the same neighborhood is a walmart broader though when it comes to whether it'd be big box retailers or other national or regional retailers? Does this create a bigger opportunity for someone in other words if someone if not completely step into Walmart shoes at least take a big piece of that business. Walmart's giving away no. I don't think so. I don't think there's any one company that will be a particular beneficiary of this. The firearms market is really fragmented. So much there halzack Bloomberg retail reporter. Thanks for joining us.

"For the kind of products that you decide to buy instead many on the left would like to do is lobby the heads of these corporations to set policy for you and they want to do so not at the behest of the consumer because there was vast consumer outcry against walmart stock was not dropping instead what they would like to do is create manufactured media controversy and then suggests that the c._e._o.'s should step in where the political bosses have failed to act so these are the new pressure tactics the basically use a form of corporate blackmail to go after corporate figures and then use them to culturally crammed what you could not achieve politically as i say all all that is perfectly. Legal is a good for the country. No it's not good for the country why well imagine a world in which visa sets policy for exactly who they will do business with imagine a world in which visa says we are just not going to process your transactions. All the credit card companies left gets what it wants. All the credit card companies say we are not going to process your transactions if they're not transactions with which we agree. That's going to get into some really dicey territory incredibly quickly because let's say for example that you want to give charity to your synagogue synagogue or your church. Your synagogue or your church does not perform same sex marriages for example and visa says okay. We are not going to allow you to give charity using using our credit card because we disagree with your churches policies k. Is that a good thing or bad thing. You have to separate what oh you will end up with is separate chains of commerce politically speaking the biggest problem in the country right. Now everyone talks about it is political polarization but the left solution for political polarization is to not let you engage in any business in any commerce unless you agree with them they would ah. Let's not pretend that they just want walmart to stop selling ammo. What they want is for everyone to stop selling the ammo and everyone's who stop selling guns was going to happen. Instead what you're going to have happen is people who set up entire chains of commerce that are based outside of the common system. We currently hold. I'll tell you what will happen. People like me will set up a conservative credit card that is designed and oriented so the conservatives can pa patronize conservative businesses and get points back to conservative causes and we'll do this not because we want but out of necessity but you will end up with is not people failing to buy guns. You'll have people buying guns in cash which actually makes it a lot harder for people to track the transactions so there on the left and you like gun control that ain't smart where you're going to end up with is a world in which we have entirely separate spheres of life life based on your political orientation because we force corporations into taking sides that is where we're going and that is the future that a lot on the left want or they. They're very excited that corporate ceos are now getting involved in these fights now in the long term. What's gonna end up happening is that these corporations are going to cut themselves off from half the american public because there will be a reaction and the reaction will be. I'm not going to shop there anymore by half so in the in the moment they're figuring that conservatives will be saying when about all of this and they'll just continue to shop at walmart and that's probably true but here's here's the reality if they had not stopped telling m._o. Left is would have continued shopping at walmart is they like to bitch and moan about walmart but then they go and shop there every day but the corporations injecting themselves into into these sorts of scenarios are going to create an alternative line of commerce and that's not maybe fine on a free market level again free markets work but it ain't going to be great on on on a cultural level for people to shop separately to go to different stores..

In fact that was the most surprising thing to me and the announcement because specific steps it took are pretty consistent with the kinds of gradual incremental things we've eighteen walmart do on this issue in the past so you know in two thousand fifteen stop selling assault rifles in two thousand eighteen. It raised the minimum age to buy firearms. He's kind of gradual things right but the policy prescriptions were interesting and this is the place where i have the most questions what i really wonder is. Is this the last time we're gonna hear anything forceful from walmart on this issue or or is it really going to start talking about this issue more even when it feeds from the headlines and if so that could be really powerful it's the fortune one company right and having that voice in the mix might provide an important source of pressure for lawmakers on this topic lawmakers and other companies right because in the new york times enter absorbs argument on this with walmart has always been and yes it could stop selling certain sorts of ammunition and firearms which it's now doing but it also is a huge partner to companies say the fortune twenty list big financial companies credit card companies etc. If walmart really really wanted to put its thumb on the scale here it could pressure its partners to stop doing business with other retailers and manufacturers share. It could absolutely do for that but you know enough could happen just by the sheer example of what it's doing because it scale is so massive you know i think back to <hes> several years ago when the economy aww heating up and walmart raised its minimum wage right. It moved in that direction and said hey the labor market's tight. This is something we've got to do to recruit the best talent and we're now at a point wait where some of my colleagues reported back in august retail wages are at a fifteen year high and walmart is part of the reason for that is that everybody else <hes> by the sheer example walmart and the competition of walmart felt pressure to step up their game on wages including target and and others and so surely by walmart taking this action. Yes it could put direct pressure partners to join in this effort but it's your example could do plenty to sort of change where corporate america's going unofficial final question does this decision by walmart from a competitive standpoint obviously good for the local you know small mom pop gun dealer who who's the same block or the same neighborhood as a walmart walmart broader though when it comes to whether it'd be big box retailers or other national regional retailers does this create a bigger opportunity for someone another someone if not completely step into walmart shoes at least take a big piece of that business walmart's giving away. No i don't think so. I don't think there's any one company that will be a particular beneficiary of this. The firearms market okay is really fragmented so much their house at bloomberg retail reporter. Thanks for joining us. My final two right after this the equity fund resource group at.

"Number eight has a couple of different projects under it. They acquired a yogurt, frozen yogurt, machine company that was pretty young. Hold whim. Basically you put in like a packet of stuff and milk, and then it would make for as an yogurt. They acquired that company and Bart Stein who was when before is now running a hardware effort under store. Number eight, it's called project Franklin. They've got a project coupler, which is their Amazon go competitor. You've got Katie Finnegan who was close with Mark Laurie and helped on a lot of the work with the acquisition shoes at jet because Mark acquired a company that she had called huckster and she's now working on VR for WalMart and these little initiatives, they sort of treat them as like their own little portfolio companies within store eight, which is within broader WalMart store itself has like twenty something around twenty. Something associates who work in research in different areas to try to see what WalMart should you may be temped to do next and where there are other areas where they can launch a little experiments. He's little. Experiments are run as their own nimble in, I guess, just to wrap up what let's give me give us also kind of a scope of the challenges that this side of WalMart faces, you know, like what's the baggage that they are that this part of the business dealing with as a, you know, sort of this company tries to make a big transition. I was surprised to learn that. So since Mark Laurie came on board, there's there's one thing he's been pushing for and it hasn't happened yet. So WalMart has been pushing online grocery, right? Especially given Amazon's pushing online grocery. We've seen both companies make competing announcements about launching new markets in different partnerships that they've got for WalMart as whole foods, rolls out delivery in different cities across the country. So WalMart has a separate site for online grocery orders. It's not through WalMart dot com. It's grocery out WalMart dot com. They're two separate sites. Mark Laurie showed up and he was like, why. Why? Why do we have to separate sites for this? That doesn't make sense. I actually only discovered this because after WalMart started really promoting or online grocery stuff, I did a search for banana on WalMart dot com. And the first multiple dozen reports, two dozen results on there were things that weren't actually the fruit banana. It was like a toothbrushes shape like banana for kids and then like banana V8. and stuff shall we v eight. Of course. I don't understand why this is happening, and then I came to realize others separate grocery site, right? So lorries been pushing for a while. People from jet have been pushing for a while to integrate those shoe. And you know, two years later, we're still here where two separate sites. So it's a big challenge when you're working in a giant corporation. And that's why those small experiments are important to them. So they try to move fast and see what is going to work. I feel more informed without all mart. Thank you Corey for being here and good luck, Tom..

"First walmart store was not opened until seventeen years after he started in business so for seventeen years he perfected his techniques particularly his merchandising techniques and and this was done on a relentless weekly basis so every week after he opened his second store he'd get together on saturday morning with the store managers and say what are we going to do better next week what what didn't work out the way we expected last week and relentlessly week after week for for year on year he he would figure out how to improve things and so his improvement path was the fastest that there's ever been and but it was seventeen years later when he decided no longer to just do franchise right to be a franchise owner and he opened up his first walmart his first walmart was not an instant success the second walmart which has a legendary story about how it was opened was the runaway success that ultimately led to the company that we know today so what was it that that that happened between the first and second store opening that that change the dynamic within the company so that that second store just kind of took it and run in some ways the second store he amped up the cost savings the everyday low.

"Um and so on on one hand i think that's smart because that acquires new customers sometimes from outside the walmart sphere a new data to work with smart employees to bring an but on the other hand i i just wonder how good of a job walmart will do to tie all of those together under the same roof aggregation is really important when it comes to being an ecommerce tighten and i'm just not sure if if they'll be able to connect everything super well um so i think that might be a stretch but there's a lot of work left to do there my largest concern though is infrastructure um so physical retail takes an entirely different approach to infrastructure than ecommerce does it's just two completely different worlds and and for one were already seeing the margins falling because walmart has to build brand new infrastructure to to build its online capabilities on top of its physical presence and so that's a much higher infrastructure cost remain relevant to the same group of people and as physical retail revenues transition in so online revenue is that picks that puts really big cost pressure on the physical uh retail infrastructure the stores the warehouses that are connected to that so i can totally see over the next five to ten years walmart could knock it out of the park with their online um successes and just keeping this momentum going but what that means is that there's going to be some some issues on the physical side not the figure out what to do with underperforming stores and figure out how to to shut things downer sell things off in it it could lead to more headaches i can't believe you've never heard of moose jaw that is i mean that is as quality a name you're going to give come as an you're in the business of sort of outdoor gier.

"Walmart is the chief pipeline for redistributing wealth from rich countries to poor countries if you're a subsistence farmer living out a dollar a day in africa or asia or latin america the surest way out of poverty is take a job in factory selling products to western customers you can multiply quickly your income by four five six times for the first time in your life you can afford electricity and running water now since nineteen ninety when walmart became the largest retailer in america the global rate of poverty has been cut by twothirds that's one of the greatest miracles in human history and walmart played a leading role in so the obvious question is why is in a more popular in a why do you hear so many terrible things about walmart one reason is is snobbery a lotta people find walmart tacky but the main reason is the walmart his challenge some very vocal special interest newspapers don't like walmart because it spends very little money in newspaper advertising local merchants don't like it because they don't want to match its prices and most important walmart workers don't give part of their paychecks to a union union leaders want to keep those jews coming and so does the politicians who get a share of those dues in the form of campaign contributions from unions some critics complain the walmart cells too many foreign products as we saw during the presidential campaign it's really easy to work up popular anger against foreign workers but from a moral standpoint if you're concerned about global income inequality he shouldn't feel guilty shopping a walmart there's nothing wrong with sending your money to those workers.
