About Store No8
We are the incubation arm of Walmart. Store No8 was formed in 2017 as part of Walmart’s larger innovation mission to shape the future of commerce. We pursue big ideas and take risks by stepping outside of Walmart’s core business to focus on leapfrog capabilities across conversational commerce, mixed reality, in-store digitization, and more. Our ultimate goal: fuel Walmart’s core business, create new operational efficiencies, and unlock amazing experiences for our customers in the long-term.
We are on a mission to save our customers money and help them live a better, more frictionless life. Our vision is to leverage the latest advances in AI and other technologies to reimagine how they shop for their households. Our products aim to anticipate and serve our customers’ wants and needs in ways that take much less time and effort.
