Walmart Canada announced a $3.5 billion investment aimed at enhancing its online commerce and stores. The investment includes plans to open two new distribution centres in the Greater Toronto Area and Surrey, B.C.. Walmart Canada will also be renovating 150 of its 400 stores in Canada over the next five years.
