Walmart Price Match discontinued at local stores

All Walmart Supercenters throughout Arizona, including the three in the quad-city area, have discontinued their price matching policies as of Oct. 16.

Price Match made it so that if Walmart customers found a lower price from an online retailer on an identical, in-stock product, then Walmart would match the price.

Charles Crowson, Walmart’s Senior Manager of Corporate Communications, explained the reasoning for the decision:

“Customers count on us for everyday low prices. In select markets, we’re offering customers even lower prices on the national and private-label brands they trust and want. As a result, cashiers will no longer be able to price match at the register, from an ad or otherwise. We understand Ad Match provided an additional layer of reassurance for customers. That’s why we’re working hard to deliver upfront low prices that customers can trust every day of the week.”
