More consumer backlash may come to Walmart Canada Thursday, as the retailer plans to inform its Manitoba customers all 16 stores in the province will not accept Visa as of October 24th.
The U-S-based retail giant and the credit-card company remain locked in a battle over merchant fees.
Walmart pledged in June it would stop accepting Visa at its more than 400 Canadian stores, noting it pays more than 100-million dollars in annual fees for customers using credit cards.
But the retailer took baby steps in acting on its plan — it only dropped Visa from its three locations in Thunder Bay, Ontario in July.
