Walmart spokesman Randy Hargrove did not comment on the letter. He directed Reuters to Chief Financial Officer Brett Bigg`s statement on the trade tariff issue when Walmart announced quarterly results on Thursday.
Biggs told Reuters the potential impact of tariffs is difficult to quantify. He also said that one of the mitigation strategies for the retailer is understanding what suppliers` plans and alternatives are for sourcing.
"We are closely monitoring the tariff discussions and are actively working on mitigation strategies, particularly in light of potentially escalating duties," he said.
Bloomberg reported Walmart`s request earlier on Friday.
