More information is available about Walmart’s decision to consolidate its e-commerce and store buying teams:
“The consolidation will happen gradually, according to the memo, starting with food and other consumables. The single merchandising team will be divided into apparel, consumables, entertainment, food, hardlines and home. The company has appointed Chandra Holt, formerly COO of Sam’s Club, to lead the integration of Walmart e-commerce into the unified buying team as chief merchandising and integration officer for Walmart e-commerce, reporting to recently installed Chief Merchandising Officer Scott McCall.”
