Walmart attempts to look cool and compete with Amazon
October 21 , 2013
Walmart is now trying to expand its presence in Silicon Valley by offering foosball tables and treadmills to engineers and naming its conference rooms after Justin Bieber and Rihanna.
The company has even stopped offering sandwiches in order to serve white asparagus panna cotta instead.
Although, Walmart has acquired several start-ups and has begun to offer same-day delivery in five markets, it still has a long way to go.
Analyst Wells-Fargo referred to Amazon as being the "Walmart of the post-2000 period."
