Walmart to Close Jetblack Personal-Shopping Service in New York

  • Business will be integrated into retailer’s customer unit
  • Decision will lead to the elimination of almost 300 positions

Jetblack is going black.

Walmart Inc.’s Jetblack, a personal-shopping service for busy urban families, will cease operations Feb. 21, according to a company spokesman. The brainchild of Walmart’s online chief Marc Lore, Jetblack will be integrated into the parent company’s operations and its technology applied to other parts of the retailer. Nearly 300 employees will be let go as part of the move, with 58 staying on with Walmart, the spokesman said.
