BENTONVILLE, Ark. — Walmart released a statement saying that the pandemic has shifted the way its customers shop – and the retailer said that will be more evident during this holiday season. It has more than doubled the number of personal shoppers since this time last year.
In Nebraska, Walmart said this amounts to more than 650 jobs this holiday season. The new positions are in combination with 500,000 new associates hired since March across the country, and another 20,000 seasonal associates for Walmart’s eCommerce fulfillment centers.
