Walmart has announced it will open a first Canadian online store, a Walmart Canada store, in Montreal.
Walmart Canada President Scott Thompson said the online store will be located at the corner of St-Michel and Victoria streets.
“We’re very excited to welcome our new Canadian retail partners to our community and our new online store,” Thompson said.
Walton’s online store has been in operation in Montreal since January, but it is the first of its kind in Canada.
Walmarts in the U.S. have been selling online since 2005, but there have been mixed results, with some retailers complaining about the complexity of the online checkout process.
Walter Walton, founder of WalMart, said the store will open in a matter of months and will have “high quality” products, and will be able to handle orders from as many as 500 locations in the country.
