retail news in context, analysis with attitude

Yahoo Finance reports that Walmart has developed a relationship with SmileDirectClub that will put "a unique line of oral care products" in its stores, bringing out "a set of superior yet reasonably-priced oral care products solely at Walmart’s U.S. stores as well as its website, Walmart.com. These products include a state-of-the-art electric toothbrush, as well as bright on, which is a fine teeth whitening system.

"Apart from this, SmileDirectClub will offer other products at Walmart, including toothpaste for whitening and sensitivity, water flosser and smile spa, a cleaner that sanitizes toothbrush heads, dentures and retainers, among others."

The move, the story says, "reinforces Walmart’s solid focus on enhancing assortments to boost sales."
