SAN BRUNO, Calif., March 26 Wal-Mart Stores Inc
will test having lockers in its stores to hold goods
ordered online until shoppers pick them up, Neil Ashe, chief
executive of its ecommerce unit, said on Tuesday.
The test is just one step the world's largest retailer is
taking to link its growing e-commerce business with its
thousands of stores around the world, Ashe told a group of
reporters at the company's e-commerce media day in San Bruno,
Amazon.com Inc, which has no stores, is installing
lockers in brick-and-mortar stores like Staples Inc to
help customers store and pick up online orders securely.
