retail news in context, analysis with attitude

Dow Jones reports that Target is preparing to get more aggressive in its ongoing battle against Walmart, and has already started making changes that include better in-store signs, television commercials and newspaper circulars. The goal, according to the story, is to be aggressive without creating a price war,” though the company is cagey about explaining exactly what this means.
KC's View:
I would only point out that it is more likely to be up to Walmart than Target when it comes to deciding whether there will be a price war. I wouldn’t bet against it.
