16 Our Guiding Principles In order to compete in a new competitive marketplace where Wal-Mart is challenged by segmented consumers and retailers offering customized and specialty services, Wal-Mart needs to attract consumers back to store by re-defining itself and shedding old consumer perceptions that they are just low priced items - but quality items, as well. Be Relevant, differentiated, conceptually simple Leverage the fundamentals Wal-Mart was successfully built on, but make it contemporary for todays world Be accessible and aspiration Provide the right selection, the right service, at the right price… all enablers of Everyday Low Prices Tone is optimistic, genuine, engaged Expressed across four key principles: product, merchandising, communication and in-store

17 Campaign Objectives Increase Wal-Mart marketshare among retailers whom offer customized and specialty services Drive customer loyalty Establish Wal-Mart as a modern-day source of diverse and fashionable brands and products Redefine Everyday Low Prices messaging to include quality products among other core competencies: selection, service and competitive pricing Position Wal-Mart as accessible and aspirational
