NEW YORK - Wal-Mart plans to expand its video game trade-in program to its stores, offering store credit for thousands of video games.
The world's largest retailer plans to let video game owners trade in used video games online and in Wal-Mart and Sam's Club stores for store credit but not cash. Previously the company offered trade-ins on a more limited basis online.
It will also offer refurbished used games in its stores for the first time.
Wal-Mart has been seeking new ways to boost revenue as its low-income customers remain under pressure due to a weak jobs picture and shaky economy. In its most recent fourth quarter, net income dropped 21 percent, and the Bentonville, Ark.-based company gave a subdued forecast for the current year.
