WALMART customers have been buying old company uniforms online and using them to shoplift, causing the retailer to make their employees switch to new uniforms that look horrible.
The woman shows herself wearing Walmarts old traditional blue vest, captioning the video: “Y’all really buy Walmart vests on eBay to steal so they made us get new horrid vests.”
The video later shows two employees sitting on the floor wearing the new yellow vests.
The viral clip has accumulated about two million views on TikTok, but many users doubt the new vests would fix the alleged shoplifting problem.
“I’ll jus buy that one too 👨🦯,” commented one person.
A second person said: “just give it like a month it will just happen again.”
“I don’t see how this will solve the issue? 😭😭😭 like ppl r just gonna sell them again,” wrote another commenter.
A fourth person said: “they’ll be on the marketplace in a few days.”
Meanwhile, another person chimed in, saying ‘nothing will stop people from stealing from the corporation.”

“Nothing is going to stop people from stealing from the corporation that took out small business owners,” wrote the TikToker.
Walmart did not immediately respond to a request for comment from The US Sun.
Alexis told the Daily Dot that she wasn’t exactly sure why the company might be rolling out new uniforms, saying she thought “it’d be funny for TikTok.”
“I was just trying to be funny for tik tok lol,” she told the outlet, adding that they were never explicitly told shoplifting was the reason for the switch.
However, she claims there are multiple theories on why the company might have changed its employee uniform.
“The new design is because people don’t follow dress code, is what I heard,” she said.
