Walmart has announced plans to shutter several stores across the US, but a new report analyzing foot traffic from Placer.ai shows that the store closures are likely a move to maximize location impact rather than a sign of instability. Walmart is overexposed in some markets, and in some ways, it is creating a cannibalization effect. Closing stores could reduce costs without impacting the store’s consumer reach.
