Walmart is actively exploring opening new stores in major Uttar Pradesh (UP) towns like Varanasi, Gorakhpur, Moradabad, Kanpur, Ghaziabad, Saharanpur and Prayagraj. It operates four stores in Lucknow, Meerut and Agra in the state now. It is also expanding its basket of locally-sourced goods in Uttar Pradesh and other states, especially for Diwali gifts.

Bolstering procurement from local micro, small and medium enterprises (MSME) ahead of Diwali, the company is sourcing a range of food items made in UP, including pickles, wheat flour, jams and sweet items, apart from traditional handicraft goods such as brassware from Moradabad and aluminium items from Hathras, Walmart India vice president (operations north) Vijeet Singh Shekhawat said recently.

He said indigenous goods are also being sourced from Jaipur, Panipat, Sholapur and Ahmedabad, according to a news agency report.

At present 98 per cent of sourcing by Walmart India is being done from within India, he said.

The company has also completely phased out single-use plastic packaging from its private brands following the government’s green initiatives, he added.
