Walmart slashes prices on clothes as inflation changes shopping habits

One of the nation’s leading retailers is rolling back prices.

Walmart recently announced plans to slash prices on apparel items in an attempt to clear out excess inventory. The moves come as inflation takes center stage across the world.

Walmart cited a shift in consumer patterns, as shoppers are focusing on buying food rather than clothes.

Currently on Walmart’s fashion section of its website, you can find savings of up to 60% off.

According to a CNN report this week, Walmart also is laying off about 200 corporate employees.

“The increasing levels of food and fuel inflation are affecting how customers spend, and while we’ve made good progress clearing hardline categories, apparel in Walmart U.S. is requiring more markdown dollars,” Doug McMillon, Walmart Inc. president and CEO, said in a press release.

Walmart isn’t the first retailer to take this approach to combat inflation.

Earlier this year, Target announced a plan to cut prices in a similar fashion to fight inflation. Target also cited a shift in shoppers’ spending habits because of the rising costs of food and other non-discretionary items.

Walmart did not specify exactly how much inventory will be marked down or how long the price cuts would last.

The company currently operates 62 stores in New Jersey and over 3,500 nationwide.

On her TikTok account where she often shares plus size finds, Liz Damyl uploaded a video showing off her Walmart haul.

It began with her trying on a pair of black pleather shorts.

“Okay, I definitely need to size up in these because they’re supposed to be a little bit more loose like paper bag shorts, but I am loving these leather shorts,” she said.

“And this detail up here kind of cinches your waist in. So stinking cute. I got them in an extra, extra large.”

She then tried on a brown patterned sleeveless jumpsuit.

She said: “I’m loving this, this is cute. For reference, I’m 5ft 8in so the length is great. It has pockets.

“Super comfortable. I got it in an extra, extra large,” she added.

Next, she sported a pair of light blue jean joggers.

“I am loving these jean joggers. I definitely would size up in them as well, because I like my joggers to be a little bit more loose.

“But they have the elastic at the ankle, as well as the waistband. So super comfortable.”

Damyl’s final purchases were some light blue flared jeans paired with an oversized grey graphic T-Shirt and a cowboy hat.
