Honolulu Star-Advertiser - - BUSINESS | BUSINESS REPORT -

NEW YORK >> Wal-Mart Stores Inc. is chang­ing its le­gal name ef­fec­tive Feb. 1 as it shifts away from phys­i­cal stores in the age of Ama­zon’s in­creas­ing dom­i­nance. The world’s largest re­tailer, based in Ben­tonville, Ark., said Wed­nes­day it will change its le­gal name to Wal­mart Inc. from Wal-Mart Stores Inc. It said the move un­der­scores its grow­ing em­pha­sis on serv­ing shop­pers in dif­fer­ent ways beyond just phys­i­cal stores but also on­line, on their mo­bile de­vices and through pickup and de­liv­ery.
