Walmart Canada Goes on a Hiring Spree

Walmart's (NYSE: WMT) Canadian branch announced on its website Friday that it intends to hire 10,000 more employees. One part of the initiative involves expanding pickup availability to 70% of Walmart Canada locations by year-end. The spending will also boost e-commerce capacity and rework outlets as "smarter stores," the company said, enabling swifter pickup and delivery, electronic labeling, and new checkout options for less contact.
