TULSA, Okla. — Walmart's corporate office says they are ending their "price matching" policy at all Green Country stores.
The company says the move is part of their "Best Price First" plan that has been in the works for more than a year.
They sent out a statement Wednesday:
"Customers count on us for everyday low prices. In select markets, we're offering customers even lower prices on the national and private-label brands they trust and want. As a result and in select stores only, cashiers will no longer be able to price match at the register, from an ad or otherwise.
"We understand Ad Match provided an additional layer of reassurance for customers. That's why we're working hard to deliver upfront low prices that customers can trust every day of the week."
Walmart encourages customers to use a price catching feature on the Walmart App to scan receipts and search for lower prices in circulars from nearby stores. If the app finds a lower price, it gives customers credit on an e-gift card.
