Walmart will replace paper labels with digital ones on shelves

Paper price labels in 2,300 stores will be replaced by new, digital ones, which will allow product values ​​to be updated more quickly

Walmart announced that it will replace paper labels with digital ones in 2,300 stores. This measure will serve to reduce the updating of prices as well as other processes that include collecting supplies from online dispatches to seconds.

Digital labels are, at first glance, very similar to the paper ones you see on shelves or shelves. However, these are small screens where the price of more than 120,000 items in the American chain’s stores is projected.

“Digital labels will be installed on the shelves of 2,300 of the company’s stores in 2026, almost half of its total park (4,700 stores),” according to Walmart senior vice president of transformation and innovation, Greg Cathey.

Through digital labels, the time that the company has invested until now in weekly updates of the paper labels on the shelves will be reduced to a minimum. A job that on average took two days will be done in about two minutes. To do this, workers will only need to click on the mobile application called Me@Walmart.
