retail news in context, analysis with attitude

• The Minneapolis/St. Paul Business Journal reports on continuing speculation that Walmart is actively scouting sites and negotiating with landlords with downtown Minneapolis, looking for an opportunity to bring its urban strategy to Target’s hometown.

Walmart, at least for now, is not commenting.

“While we are always looking for opportunities to create jobs and improve access to affordable groceries here, we don’t have any new projects to announce,” spokesman Steve Restivo tells the Business Journal in an email.
