retail news in context, analysis with attitude

CNN reports that “Walmart has removed about 1,000 third-party items from its website … after determining the products violate company policy.”

The story notes that Walmart “regularly reviews its 75 million online offerings,” and in this case was looking for products violating its ban on merchandise that glorifies violence.

Walmart has been criticized in some quarters for not moving fast enough to change some of its gun-related policies in the wake of the mass shooting by a white nationalist domestic terrorist that resulted in the deaths of 22 people in El Paso, Texas.
