Ticketmaster is teaming up with Walmart to offer consumers another outlet to buy tickets for concerts and other events.
Ticketmaster has installed touch-screen kiosks in the electronic departments of 42 Walmarts across North Carolina, as part of a nationwide partnership. That includes about a dozen in the Triangle.
Walmart employees will assist customers buying and printing tickets.
For the retailer, the arrangement could help increase traffic as Walmart seeks to boost its electronics business. And it allows Ticketmaster to provide consumers another choice if they don't want to buy tickets online.
Customers still pay the dreaded "convenience" fees. But they don't pay order-processing or delivery fees, said Ticketmaster spokeswoman Jacqueline Peterson.
