And there is even more good news – this time it’s around how we continue to recognize our associates. Our nearly 1.6 million associates across the U.S. have helped fuel excitement about Walmart+ and are crucial to its success. Whether they are picking out the freshest produce for a delivery order or ensuring a Walmart.com package arrives in two days or less, our associates continue to show up big time by providing a great customer and member experience every day.
That’s why today, I’m excited to announce that all full- and part-time Walmart U.S. associates working in our stores, distribution centers and fulfillment centers are getting a free Walmart+ membership. This new associate benefit is not only our way to say thank you for all they do, but it’s also so associates can use our membership, tell us how it’s going and ultimately speak to customers about it from personal experience.
We are incredibly proud of the Walmart+ membership offering we’ve built. But we are even more proud of the associates who make your shopping experience better every day.
As we look into the future, Walmart+ will only continue to evolve. Stay tuned for new partnerships, new ways to save and an even more seamless in-store and online experience in the coming months, as we continue to find innovative ways to expand our Walmart+ offerings and reach even more customers.
