retail news in context, analysis with attitude

• The Wall Street Journal reports that Walmart “may begin adding large appliances such as stoves and dishwashers to stores in Texas this year as part of a pilot program that could lead to a nationwide launch.”

The program would be launched as part of a deal with General Electric, and could affect as many as 100 stores in the pilot stage.
KC's View:
We’re hearing a lot of “maybes” and “coulds” in Walmart stories lately, as the company looks for any and all ways to regain momentum in the US. I think they’ll try almost anything ... and this makes them dangerous to all its current competitors, and competitors yet-to-come.
