retail news in context, analysis with attitude

TheStreet.com has a piece about Walmart suggesting that the company no longer is "the most efficient, well-run retailer on the planet." And it has numbers and graphics to back the argument up - especially one video and five photos that illustrate merchandising lapses in Walmart stores.

While it cannot be argued that these problems exist in every Walmart store, the suspicion is that it happens a lot more than anyone in Bentonville would like to admit … and that these represent some of the fundamental - if unsexy - challenges facing new CEO Doug McMillon.

You can see the story, the video and the photos here.
