President and CEO Doug McMillon said "Customers make their shopping decisions based on four key dimensions – price assortment, experience and access. What we can offer them, and how we compete across those dimensions, is changing... We have tens of millions of customers visiting us weekly online and through our mobile apps looking for information, product options and then buying merchandise from us in stores and online. We’re known for assortment and we will be in the future.” Discussing price and experience, McMillon went on to say, “At Walmart, we serve value-conscious customers that come from all walks of life and all income levels. Price matters to our customers and it always will. As a company, being a low cost operator is in our DNA. This will never change and we will be the price leader, across a broad assortment, everywhere we operate." McMillon continued, “To capture the upside of our strategic advantages, we need to develop a more seamless relationship with our customers. We won't just be a store on the street." McMillon outlined what the company is doing to win now, noting that improving the company’s short-term performance is a priority across all of Walmart’s segments and markets. “Our supercenters in the U.S. should be delivering positive comps consistently. Our combination of pricing, in stock, service levels and merchant skills will generate improved performance in our supercenters. Our Neighborhood Markets continue to be a bright spot in terms of comp sales.” McMillon highlighted three key points that will drive the business going forward: “First, we're going to position ourselves to do a better job serving customers. We can create a next generation customer proposition through the combination of what we do with price, assortment, access and experience. We will save them money and time. Second, our priority is growth. Driving demand is the only sustainable way to deliver returns over time. Finally, we’ll manage capital in a disciplined, thoughtful manner.”
