retail news in context, analysis with attitude

• MNB reported yesterday that Walmart has issued a public apology for the public address announcement made at a Washington Township, New Jersey, store last Sunday that “all black people” should leave the store immediately, even as it tries to figure out who made the announcement.

However, an apology may not be enough. The Washington Post reports that Gloucester County Prosecutor Sean F. Dalton has launched an investigation into the incident. And Walmart has promised to insure that in the future, phones with access to store intercom systems will be less accessible to the public.
