I thought I’d update you guys on what happened in regards to Walmart’s legal threat.
I emailed the lawyer with the letter we prepared (after changing it based on the feedback I got in the comments). I never heard back from them which I think is a good thing. Thank you everyone for your help and support. I think that everyone contacting Walmart Canada and letting them know that SmartCanucks is authentic significantly helped! Here’s a reply Kimable, a SmartCanucks reader, got from Walmart Canada when she emailed them:
We appreciate your concern and the opportunity to respond. The communication sent to Smartcanucks originated from an external law firm in the United States, as part of our global company’s effort to defend customers against the growing incidence of online fraud. Unfortunately, Walmart Canada did not have the opportunity to review the communication before it was sent. We believe it was overzealous. However, we continue to urge customers to be very cautious when assessing online offers bearing Walmart’s name

Once again, thank you everyone for your advice and support 😀
