Walmart will change over to digital shelf labels

Process is expected to be complete by 2026

Walmart is going digital with its shelf labels, and the conversion could take two years.

The retailer has been testing the digital shelf labels (DSLs) at Store 266 in Grapevine, Texas, and will bring the technology to all its 2,300 stores by 2026. Each store has over 120,000 products.

Workers will be able to use an app to change prices with the DSLs, and Walmart is hoping to experience the following benefits:

  • Increased productivity and reduced walking time: A price change that used to take two days to update will now take minutes
  • Simplified stock replenishment: A “Stock to Light” feature allows an associate to flash an LED light on a shelf tag using a mobile device signaling locations that need attention. The feature makes it easier for associates to identify shelf location when stocking shelves
  • Faster order picking and fulfillment: A “Pick to Light” feature guides workers directly to products needed for online orders
