The nation's biggest retailer is now selling tickets to concerts and sporting events.

Sixty-nine Wal-Mart stores in Southern California are now outfitted with touch-screen Ticketmaster terminals inside.

Customers can browse through the terminals for available concerts, shows and sporting events. Once a customer picks an event, a Wal-Mart employee will help complete the transaction and immediately print the tickets.

Among the Wal-Mart stores outfitted with the terminals are Anaheim, Baldwin Park, Buena Park, Cerritos, Industry, La Habra, Huntington Beach, Long Beach, Palmdale, Panorama City, Paramount, Santa Clarita, Santa Ana, Torrance and Santa Fe Springs. Wal-Mart is also adding kiosks to other stores across the country.
