Though life has begun to normalize with the lifting of pandemic restrictions, new challenges continue to emerge. Inflation, supply chain issues and geopolitical crises make access to healthy and affordable food critical.
I’m proud of the resilience our associates have continued to show during these times of uncertainty as they operate our distribution and fulfilment centres, load trucks, stock shelves, greet customers and assist with online pickup orders and deliveries. They are focused on the things we can control such as our commitment to everyday low prices – something we’re honouring with our “Locked In Low Prices” campaign, which offers customers significant savings on Walmart Brand products.
Canadians are relying on us now more than ever before and we won’t let them down.
Our fleet drivers travel approximately 45 million kilometres each year to bring goods to/from our distribution and fulfilment centres. Our supply chain associates diligently work to get products into the hands of our customers. Our store associates work around the clock to keep more than 400 Walmart stores across the country stocked and open.
I’m awed by their efforts and today on Grocery Heroes Day I want to say a huge thank you to our Walmart associates for putting your communities first and helping 1.5 million Canadians save money and live better each day.
