Walmart To Start Counting, Monitoring Customers
WALMART WILL START COUNTING CUSTOMERS AGAIN AS CORONAVIRUS CASES REACH RECORD LEVELS
Ft. Smith, AR (KFSM) – Walmart has gone back to counting and monitoring the number of customers that enter and leave its stores.
It comes as coronavirus cases reach record levels.
In April, the retail giant started restricting the number of people to 20% of its store capacity, or lower if mandated by local officials.
For a brief time, though, the company’s stores stopped counting the number of customers that entered.
Like other retailers, Walmart is spreading out Black Friday sales to limit the number of people in stores during the holiday shopping season.
The retailer’s Black Friday deals will last three weekends, which will begin on its website before hitting stores a few days later.
