By November, Sam's Club stores across the U.S. will be offering Wi-Fi to enable its customers to compare prices online through their smartphones, according to a report from Wal-Mart Stores Inc.
To facilitate this, Sam's Club has partnered with AT&T
Nearly 500 retail warehouse clubs operated by Wal-Mart will be incorporating this service, the report said.
The new facility is aimed at giving the members of Sam's Club a big picture of how the applications such Vudu video streaming, Facebook, Pandora, or others will look at home by using Wi-Fi-ready Internet TV.
According to the report, the retailer is the first to offer Internet TV live demos for its customers. Besides, many large-screen TV makers will be showcasing their 3-D TVs in Sam's Club stores across the U.S.
"Our members are early adopters of technology and electronics, and we're excited to deliver an improved experience in our clubs," said Brian Cornell, president and CEO, Sam's Club.
"This investment in connectivity allows us to showcase the high-quality brands we offer in a new engaging way, provide an enhanced level of service and brings to life our promise to our members of Savings Made Simple," he added.
