Our customers want the very best experience when they choose to shop with us.
This past year, as more and more customers stayed home, we accelerated expenditures in all aspects of the business.
Walmart Canada invested significantly to modernize and introduce new technologies to serve our customers better.
The cornerstone of our plan was a milestone $3.5 billion investment over the next five years aimed to generate significant growth and to make the online and in-store shopping experience simpler, faster and more convenient for our customers.
Walmart Canada also made sizeable investments in “stores of the future” designed to make the shopping experience as easy as possible. We accelerated and prioritized our online business to offer customers more pickup and delivery capacity.
At the same time, with more products being shipped than ever before, we broke ground on new state-of-the art distribution centres in both Ontario and British Columbia. And we expanded our partnerships with third-party companies such as Instacart and Cornershop to get products to customers faster.
All of these efforts are growing our business and providing jobs in construction and in-store to boost the local economy.
