A Wal-Mart Stores Inc. (WMT) vice president, in a Feb. 12 email to other company executives, said sales for the month to date were a "total disaster," Bloomberg News reported Friday.
Jerry Murray, vice president of finance and logistics, wrote that it "the worst start to a month I have seen" in his roughly seven years with Wal-Mart, Bloomberg reported.
In a Feb. 1 internal email, Cameron Geiger, senior vice president of Wal-Mart U.S. Replenishment, also expressed concern about slow sales.
A Wal-Mart spokesman told Bloomberg that "As with any organization, we often see internal communications that are not entirely accurate, that lack the proper context and represent individual opinions."
