Walmart, Target, and Many More Retailers are Slashing Prices. What Does That Mean For Inflation?

What’s Happening and How Rellevate Can Help

Price reductions at all types of retailers (from Grocery and Drug stores, to Fast Food and Big Box stores) are kicking into gear to win over cash-strapped consumers, but that doesn’t mean the battle against inflation has been won.

Walmart has rolled back prices on nearly 7,000 items in its stores, noting deflationary trends in general merchandise:

“Our combination of everyday low prices plus a large number of rollbacks is resonating with consumers”

Target has slashed prices on more than 1,500 items, ranging from laundry detergent to cat food to sunscreen, with thousands more price cuts expected over the summer. Online discount retailers like Temu are blowing past market expectations with a massive surge as consumers swarm these bargain-shopping apps for low-cost products.

Plus, other retailers including Amazon, Ikea, Aldi, and Walgreens have also announced price reductions while QSR chains are reintroducing lower priced value meals.

Some economists say that despite falling prices being a good sign, mortgage rates need to fall and employee wage growth needs to be tamed to achieve the Fed’s overall 2% inflation goal.

“While price cuts are going to be helpful, we’re still going to have to see housing rates come down, and wage growth to normalize”
