Wal-Mart Changes its Name to Reflect Focus on Digital

Wal-Mart Stores Inc. is taking the “Stores” out of its name. MarketWatchreports the big-box retailer will shorten its legal name to Walmart Inc. The move highlights Wal-Mart’s message that it is more than just large storefronts, while also showing a commitment to its digital business. “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 with us however you like as a customer,” Doug McMillon, Wal-Mart’s president and CEO, said in a statement. “As time goes on, customers will increasingly just think of and see one Wal-Mart.”
