Walmart: Going Beyond Company Disclosures

Walmart has rounded out its fiscal year with a strong set of numbers that show it has taken supply chain disruption, rising costs, heavy inflation, and various other problems in its stride. There is comfortable growth on both the top and bottom lines, which is extremely respectable given tough prior year comparatives. Walmart hiring is slowing down as compared to hiring in the months of April and March in 2022. Walmart posted close to 40,000 vacancies in March and 30,000 in April, which has gone below 10,000 in June 2022. Walmart Company Filings has most of the mentions related to the ESG and COVID-19 themes in 2021. ESG has more than 300 mentions in the company’s 2021 filings which indicates the rising focus on ESG-related issues.

The retailer opened Screwfix Sandyford and Swords in Dublin while the Waterford store is expected to open later this month.

The stores will feature 10,000 products that range from power tools and workwear to heating and electrical equipment. Customers can also place orders online or through phone for items from a catalogue of 24,000 products.

The retailer is planning to open as many as 40 stores in Ireland in the next few years as part of its expansion strategy. This will generate more than 400 jobs.

Screwfix CEO John Mewett said: “We’re extremely excited to be launching Screwfix stores in Ireland to help tradespeople get their jobs done quickly, affordably and on time.

“The creation of bricks and mortar stores in Ireland is a major milestone for us and a direct result of the increasing demand from Irish tradespeople for our fantastic range of products. Our Irish customers are already committed to our Screwfix.ie website, but we know the convenience a Screwfix store provides their local town.”

Screwfix is owned by international home improvement company Kingfisher, which owns more than 1,300 stores in nine countries in Europe, Russia and Turkey.

With more than 40 years of experience in the trade and DIY industry, Screwfix has expanded its portfolio with bricks and mortar stores to complement its online business.

Last week, Screwfix launched its latest new store on Mid Craigie Industrial Estate in the UK.
