Ocean County Wal-Mart Stores Will Change Their Names In 2018
It's one of those things that a lot of us haven't really noticed, but if you look at some receipts and official documents, you'll notice that the official legal name of the mega-retailer is "Wal-Mart Stores" or simply "Wal*Mart".
But by this time in only about 6 weeks, they'll be sporting a new name.
USAToday is reporting that the retail giant has decided to drop both the hyphen and "stores" from their official name, and will just be "Walmart".
While it may seem like an insignificant tweak to us, the company's CEO said of the change:
“While our legal name is used in a limited number of places, we felt it was best to have a name that was consistent with the idea that you can shop us however you like as a customer'
Of course, in the last few years in particular there's been a huge move from customers shopping in physical stores to shopping online at websites like Amazon and the freshly rebranded Walmart plans to do all that they can to keep up in 2018 and beyond.
So keep your eyes open while you're shopping at Ocean County's 4 Walmart locations, and you might start to see those subtle changes for yourself.
