Walmart Code Eight Service
Code Eight, a Walmart subsidiary run by Rent the Runway co-founder Jennifer Fleiss and part of Walmart’s startup incubator titled Store No 8, is reportedly testing a service for New Yorkers to receive personalized products to buy over text message. An article in Recode pointed to busy mothers and addressed categories like health and beauty, household goods and apparel. The items would be delivered in as quick as a day and for free. Walmart also updated its mobile app recently to include a new Mobile Express Returns feature. Shoppers can use the app to begin the return process by, for example, entering reasons for return and how to receive the refund. When bringing the item to a store for return, the shopper then uses a dedicated Mobile Express Lane and scans a QR code to log in the return, and simply hands over the item to an associate.
