Get back to the basics with Walmart

Shopping at Walmart makes keeping resolutions easier

MISSISSAUGA, ON, Jan. 14 /CNW/ - The most popular New Year's resolutions this year are about reducing spending, paying off debt and healthier living, according to research commissioned by Walmart Canada. Walmart asked Canadians whether they were planning to make a New Year's resolution, what their resolution would be and whether they would keep it.

Of the one third of Canadians who said they would make a resolution this year, only about half believe they will stick with it throughout 2010. The top three resolutions this year are:

    -   Follow a regular exercise routine 74%
    -   Make more healthy meals at home 64%
    -   Pay off debts 60%

Walmart resolves to help

To help all Canadians keep their resolutions and financial goals for 2010, Walmart Canada is kicking off the year with some healthy discounts.

Walmart knows this is the time of the year when Canadians renew their commitment to get fit, spend more time with family, spend less money and pay off debt, so, to help our customers get off to a good start for 2010 and tackle their New Year's resolutions, we are offering great prices on a variety of items.
