retail news in context, analysis with attitude

MarketWatch reports on a new JP Morgan survey saying that Walmart raised its food prices during the past quarter more than  any of its major competitors - 5.5 percent, compared to 4.6 percent at Target, 4.4 percent at Kroger, 2.9 percent at Albertsons, and 0.5 percent at Sprouts.

KC's View:
  Sounds like this is marketing ammo for anyone who competes with Walmart and can prove that their average food price increases are lower than those imposed by the Bentonville Behemoth.
