(Metro) Walmart appears to be gearing up for a retail price war.
The world's biggest retailer says it's going to cut prices on 20-thousand products this holiday season.
Company officials said Thursday they might also broaden Walmart's price-matching policy to include online retailers.
The company will also offer free shipping on at least 100 items on its "top gift" list.
The moves come as Walmart has posted six straight quarters of flat or lower same-store sales. Walmart also saw its holiday quarter profits fall last year.
