The two retailers will continue to operate independent sites and target different customers — for the everyday, price-conscious shopper and Jet for more upscale city dwellers, according to spokesman Dan Toporek in a quote from Bloomberg. Yet in certain cases, “where there are gaps in the assortment,” will offer the Walmart private brands.
