Wal-Mart & Dell team up
Will test offering Solution Station in 15 Stores
Wall-Mart wants to get a slice of the lucrative electronic services arena as they look for ways to expand and grow their business. To that end they are going to team up with Dell to test a concept for an in-store electronics services offering that will be called “Solution Station by Dell.”
Solution Station will be manned by Dell employees and will include repair, consulting, and installation of products purchased at Wal-Mart. According to initial reports they will be at least doing some installation of home theater and flat panel TVs, as well.
The initial trial will run in 15 stores in Texas and they will evaluate the results to determine if this is something that is a viable product for a company like Wal-Mart. If the initial testing results are successful it is expected that they will determine how to roll it out to additional Wal-Mart stores.
