A Walmart warehouse in San Antonio is one of a handful of stores to use Amazon’s Mechanical Turk service to help customers find and buy merchandise, and one of the first to offer a discount for customers who sign up for the service.

Walmart has a large presence in the South, where it is the second-largest private employer in the state after Texas-based Walgreens.

The company has more than 5,000 employees in Texas and more than 6,000 nationwide.

Amazon has built its online retail business by acquiring or acquiring small retail chains and reselling those brands in more-expensive, high-margin locations.

The retailing giant also recently purchased an online clothing retailer, H&M, and is looking to expand into other categories, including electronics and home decor.
