Walmart Statement on 2015 Cyber Monday

SAN BRUNO, Calif.–(BUSINESS WIRE)–Statement attributable to Fernando Madeira, President and CEO,

“Mobile firmly established itself as the dominant shopping trend, for
both traffic and sales. Mobile is making up more than 70 percent of
traffic to,
and now, nearly half of our orders since Thanksgiving have been placed
on a mobile device – that’s double compared to last year. Our customers
went from previously mostly searching and browsing on mobile, to making
purchases at a much higher rate.

“But what was really fun to see were the products that grew the most in
popularity from last year. Star Wars toys, 4K HDTVs 50-55”, drones, Xbox
One and PS4 video game bundles, iPad Minis and 14-ft. trampolines were
among the categories that gained the biggest boost in popularity, and we
bought deep in these items to serve customers looking to wrap up those
gifts. 2,000 of these and other Cyber Week deals are available on each day through Friday, Dec. 4th.”
