New Wal-mart Logo

Recommended Posts

Honestly, what's with the fad with lowercasing company names in their updated logos these days?

lowercasing <> Proper Casing.

Besides, who wants a logo that's shouting at you?

I hate to bump old threads, but I noticed today on the new Wally World that's going up on my way to work, the new signage is still the old "WALstar_icon.jpgMART" logo. So much for brand consolidation.

They just converted a Home Depot around here into a WAL*MART... not walmart*. I was a little confused about that one too.

Who cares about WalMart? Target is way better, after all they did buy the name of the new Twins stadium. :D

Stay out of threads if you have nothing to contribute.

True. Guess my old employer was ahead of the game seeing as they went lower case in 1968:

Wouldn't that be proper case?

I'm fairly sure he meant the "merican" part....

I'm just wondering if anyone has seen stores with the new logo on the front of the store? I drove by a new Walmart* north of Toronto and all the signs had the new logo.

i haven't. The one closest to me still has the old signage. Everything else in the store has the current logo.

whats interesting is that on all the sams choice and great value products, it still referrs to wal-mart and not Walmart*. it says, "distributed by Wal-Mart, inc."

The only use I have noticed with the new logo is the plastic bags.

Even in the none reset Wal-marts I've been to recently, its more than the bags. The signs are still the old ones (until the reset), but the staff has new clothing including ugly dark blue hats with a huge asterisk on the front.

I decided to take a photo with my camera phone on my way home. I'll try to take my digital camera someday for a better picture.

I like the way it looks.

Pretty nice, if you ask me.

The brand new Supercentre at Markham Rd./Steeles Ave. has the new logos. I'm assuming thats the one in DEAD!'s picture.

No, this is at Hwy 27, between Hwy 7 and Langstaff in Woodbridge.

the navy shirts and khaki pants has been company policy for well over a year. They ditched the vests to said uniform. Blue vests were for regular and salaried employees, red for CSS/CSM and green for produce and Lawn and Garden associates. The hat on the other hand is fairly new. but i do agree they are ugly as hell.
