The supply chain is in shambles, and almost everyone knows about it. Retailers are taking this into account and thinking that the people who will be going to shop for the holiday season are going to stock to the market soon in order to get the holiday season gifts and other stuff early.
They might be doing this out of fear of the supply stocks getting out and running dry or maybe the delivery gets delayed or something. This is something that had been achieved by the common human behavior as had been summarized by the retailers.
Now let’s talk about Walmart. Walmart says that they have taken all the measures and that they are ready for the holidays. Walmart also says that even though they are ready for the holidays with everything in stock but they have not yet seen any huge wave of early shoppers yet.
This is unexpected since there must have been a lot of people going in for the early holiday shopping. We have heard Walmart say that there had been a few holiday season shoppers who have shopped their goods already but the rush that had been expected in this situation had not reached yet.
Amazon and Target had had enough of the shoppers or we should say early holiday shopping people but Walmart is left behind in this case. We know very well that Amazon and Target are the top 2 competitors of Walmart and it falling behind is not a good sign for the company.
They did not even start the strategy of pushing seasonal holiday goods on the people when Target did it. They did it much later. Maybe that is the cause behind this slump? Or was this too a part of the strategy of Walmart? Well, we are not sure but we will surely let you know when the news update comes in.
Right now as the situation stands, Walmart is not getting a lot of early holiday shopping people now but they may soon get it as the tides turn very soon in the market. That is all for now.
