Citing growing civil unrest occurring around the country, this week Walmart (NYSE: WMT) has pulled all firearms and ammunition from the sales floor in all of its U.S. stores in a bid to thwart looters from stealing them. Consumers will still be able to purchase guns and ammo. The Wall Street Journal reports Walmart sent a memo to store managers asking them to take all firearms and ammunition from store shelves "out of an abundance of caution" due to recent "civil unrest."
DoorDash will deliver items from more than 500 Sam's Club pharmacies and patients can call the pharmacies to schedule a same-day delivery, the warehouse club operator said. Patients can buy prescribed medications from Sam's Club without a membership, according to the club operator's website. "Businesses have evolved amid the pandemic to prioritize the safety of their communities and to adapt to new consumer habits," DoorDash Chief Operating Officer Christopher Payne said.
Walmart Inc removed firearms and ammunition from U.S. store floors this week to protect customers and employees as tensions across the country have been rising, the world's largest retailer said on Thursday. The move comes days before the U.S. presidential election on Nov. 3, with many worried that the result could be contested or spark violence. "We have seen some isolated civil unrest and as we have done on several occasions over the last few years, we have moved our firearms and ammunition off the sales floor as a precaution for the safety of our associates and customers," a Walmart spokesman said.
