Walmart ending in-store price-matching

HOUSTON –  Bargain hunters have been enjoying big savings with Walmart's in-store ad-matching program, now it's coming to an end at hundreds of stores.

The program promised to match lower prices advertised by its competitors.

In order to get the discounts, customers had to present a competitor's printed ad displaying the lower price while checking out.

The store is getting rid of ad-matching at 500 stores by June 9.

Walmart says it plans to implement long-term discounts on items at the stores affected by the change.

No word yet on which stores are ending the program.
