Criticism in Economic impact section needs dispersal[edit]

The paragraph beginning "Walmart has been subject to criticism..." is clearly a remnant of a more generic criticism section, and does not fit into the Economic impact section in which it is found. Please distribute it's contents into more appropriate sections. Sondra.kinsey (talk) 19:15, 1 September 2017 (UTC)

I created a summary of Criticism of Walmart, a lot of content should be moved to that article due WP:CFORK. Rupert Loup (talk) 17:36, 7 November 2017 (UTC)
Hi, Sondra.kinsey and Rupert loup. Dedicated criticism and controversy sections are deprecated in favor of disbursement of content. That is why that section was removed. Please smoothly disburse, and then delete that section header. Thank you. Having fun! Cheers! {{u|Checkingfax}} {Talk} 04:03, 9 November 2017 (UTC)
Checkingfax, actually, according with WP:CFORK, summary-style spin-offs are the one who are a acceptable and encouraged. However, there must be consensus in what should be in this article and the article about criticism in order to avoid WP:POVFORK. Rupert Loup (talk) 06:21, 9 November 2017 (UTC)

Reference 3 incorrect date[edit]

Per the link provided in the citation (http://s2.q4cdn.com/056532643/files/doc_financials/2017/Q4/Earnings-Release-final.pdf), the date for reference 3 should be February 21, 2017, not 2016:

"Wal Mart Stores Inc 2017 Q4 Results" (XBRL). United States Securities and Exchange Commission. February 21, 2016.

Walmart Credit Cards Section[edit]

This section reads like an advertisement and is poorly written. ZTPeterson October 13, 2017

Hi, ZTPeterson. Please dig in, and please check back if you need any assistance. Cheers! {{u|Checkingfax}} {Talk} 03:59, 9 November 2017 (UTC)

New "prototype" store concept (as of 2012)[edit]

I didn't see this mentioned in the article. A new Walmart that opened in my town in 2012 (replacing an old Walmart discount store, which is officially known as a Division 1 store) is weird. The store manager referred to it as a Walmart Supercenter during the grand opening, but it totally isn't. It's just general merchandise, an expanded grocery section, fresh produce, freezers, cold meats, and a prepackaged deli. No fresh deli. No tire center. No vision center. No hair or nail salons. But there is a restaurant (a Dunkin Donuts in this case). Elsewhere in the county, another one of these stores was opened (with a Subway). It's laid out in the exact reverse of our store (supposedly, our store was mistakenly built in reverse, which wouldn't surprise me in the slightest). The store was referred to as a "prototype" upon opening, but I also heard around the same time that this was the new model going forward, and the full Supercenters were no longer being built. Any truth to this? The biggest complaint during opening week was the lack of a deli. Tuxedo Mark (talk) 23:55, 30 October 2017 (UTC)
