Nowadays, it has risen in the spread of the Omicron variant of COVID-19 and it has a significant impacts on retail business. Walmart is a discount store, whose vision was to sell more for less. Currently Walmart is operating discount stores, supercenters, and neighborhood markets around the globe. Walmart has ambitious plans to increase its international sales in Europe over a couple of months after COVID-19. It has a logical target to assess the opportunities and build upon acquisitions in mostly France, Germany and the UK etc. The feasibility of business strategies to defend the European market for Walmart would overcome the impact of COVID 19.
