retail news in context, analysis with attitude

Reuters this morning reports that "Walmart Canada will stop accepting Visa Inc cards at its 16 stores in the province of Manitoba starting on Oct. 24," expanding on a challenge to what it sees as Visa's unacceptably high transaction fees that led it to stop accepting Visa in three of its stores in Ontario.

Walmart Canada said that the ban could be extended to more stores if a deal with Visa cannot be achieved.
