In its ongoing pursuit of Amazon-level online dominance, Wal-Mart Stores, Inc. has made a bold decision. No, it’s not going to start paying its employees a higher wage or stop selling guns. It is getting rid of the word “Stores” in its legal name and ditching that pesky hyphen. (Stylistically, it ditched the hyphen years ago.) According to Reuters, that the name change “highlights the company’s online, pickup and delivery and mobile shopping capabilities.”
