Walmart Supercenter associates will wear the gray vests with the bright blue trim. Employees at its Neighborhood Market stores, which are smaller than the average Walmart, will wear the vests with the green trim. Meanwhile, associates managing self-checkouts will wear a yellow vest with gray trim. Walmart plans on introducing other vest styles later this year, including pink, and allowing employees to choose according to their personal style.
Employees will get the new vests later this year for free and can upgrade to one of the other new designs or a different trim for up to $11. The new change comes after the store relaxed its dress code last year. Walmart wants its employees to be able to express themselves while remembering the importance of uniforms.
