retail news in context, analysis with attitude

The answer to that question appears to be yes, as the company’s CEO, John Rishton, told shareholders on Tuesday that Ahold is looking for opportunities in the Netherlands, the Czech Republic and the United States…though he was not any more specific about the possibilities.
KC's View:
Hmmm…wonder what companies might be available and a good fit for Ahold.

I’ve always thought that it seemed like a better bet that Ahold could sell off some of its US operations, but apparently that’s not what Rishton has in mind.
