For independent grocers and the wholesalers that serve them
I've been watching that rumble for over a year now. I'm not sure that Walmart can run a store that small with the challenges that they have. It will be interesting to see if it can support itself in the urban communities.
Small independents should concentrate heavily on customer service, community involvement and happy associates. We need to make the best shopping experience available to customers, and stay abreast of their needs, something that the smaller business can attune to better.
