retail news in context, analysis with attitude

• Walmart announced that a deal with Electrify America has resulted in “more than 120 plus ultra-fast electric vehicle (EV) charging stations (that) are now operational and open to the public at Walmart stores across the U.S.

“Building upon the original commitment set forth in April 2018, the companies are planning to expand the relationship in the coming years with additional Electrify America charging stations located at Walmart stores across the country.” The collaboration, according to the announcement, “is expected to make the retailer one of the largest retail hosts of electric vehicle charging stations across the  United States, and reinforces Walmart's broader mission to spark collective action – alongside key partners – to drive environmental sustainability and provide customers access to sustainable options.”
