Wal-Mart is faltering.  Link.  Target and Costco are eating its lunch.

Hardly surprising.  The times I’ve been to Wal-Mart stores, even brand new ones, I was surprised at how hideously messy they were.  Target and Costco won’t tolerate half-eaten bags of Cheetos in the aisles.  At W-M it was hard to find things that were unopened, unworn or even just plain hard to find stuff.

I think of them as the next Montgomery Wards.  They’ll either re-invent themselves (that’s gobbledegookspeak for “Cleaning up their act”) or be history in 15 years.
