Walmart has 150 million people visiting their 4,756 stores every week – that is 31,539 customers per store per week. Not to be confused with Amazon, who claimed they have 150 million prime members in 2020.
As the world’s largest retailer, Walmart continues to push into new areas to grab customer share of wallet. Their new in-store health care clinics aim to grab some of the annual $3.6 trillion spent on health care.
Range of services will include medical, dental, eye care, X-rays, hearing tests, and diagnostic lab tests for things like blood glucose and lipids. With a reputation for squeezing costs out of the business processes, Walmart will inform customers the price of services offered upfront leaving no surprises at the end. As part of Walmart’s DNA, they will find ways to lower the costs of health care services.
Look forward to price rollbacks with service enhancements.
