retail news in context, analysis with attitude

Analysts in the UK are now predicting that Wal-Mart’s Asda Group may overtake Sainsbury to become the second-ranked supermarket chain there by Christmas.

The speculation follows the release of market share data that suggests that while Sainsbury profits are up, Asda is simply growing faster.
KC's View:
Only Tesco now stands between Wal-Mart and domination of the UK grocery market.

And we all know that Wal-Mart likes second place about as much as Leo Durocher did.
