Walmart has remained more resilient to COVID-19 than non-food retailers, as consumers increasingly prioritize grocery items.

Walmart has been making changes to better support its staff throughout the COVID-19 crisis, which will help to prove its ethical standards, and be remembered by its consumers and stakeholders in the long term.

The coronavirus (COVID-19) company impact report analyses how the pandemic will impact Walmart's performance.


– The essential nature of Walmart’s business, alongside its superior online proposition, puts it in good stead to maintain appeal amid the pandemic.

– As Walmart’s largest market, the rapid increase in the number of COVID-19 cases in North America will put considerable pressure on its operations, so it must utilise its learnings from its Chinese fascias to adapt its proposition.
