Walmart said the locked products were only in 12 of the store’s 4,700 locations stating, “Like other retailers, the cases were put in place to deter shoplifters from some products such as electronics, automotive, cosmetics and other personal care products.” A Walmart spokesperson said, “As a retailer serving millions of customers every day from diverse backgrounds, Walmart does not tolerate discrimination of any kind.”
