Wal-Mart Stores Inc.
Walmart is celebrating “Galentine’s Day,” a celebration of female friendship made popular by the NBC show Parks and Recreation. One thousand Walmart stores are helping shoppers mark the occasion by selling Galentine’s Day themed decorations, party supplies and gifts. “These products are ‘aged up’ with fun phrases and really developed with our customers in mind,” said Wendy Milstead, seasonal buyer for Walmart, in a blog post. “Whether it’s the tassel garland with metallic accents or foodie enamel pins with matching ‘punny’ sayings, we wanted to add in a bit of glamour to this fun, empowering holiday.”
