Wal-Mart: the New Amazon for Apparel?

What: Dirt-cheap clothes. Check. Celeb fashion collabs. Check. Monopoly on the online shopping market? Getting there. Wal-Mart has just expanded its site to include one million new items, including apparel. The twist is the new inventory is from outside retailers. Like this $19 clutch from eBags.

What They Say:

Retail consultant Burt Flickinger III said Wal-Mart can use online sales as a growth area, especially considering how the company’s stores have saturated much of the U.S. market. He said Wal-Mart also can draw online customers from the European continent and South Korea, where it no longer has stores.

What We Say: Hey, anything that makes online shopping easy and affordable is very much welcome around these parts. We guess it’ll take a long time before we think of Wal-Mart as an online shopping search engine, but we’ve no doubt the retail giant will get there if it tries hard enough! Thoughts?

    mmmmmmmmmm NOT too keen on the idea of Wally-Mart being an online shopping search engine.  I’ll need to see what type of clothing and brands they offer.
