Is Smaller Better for Wal-Mart?

Wal-Mart stock is up eight percent this year. Most people would be thrilled to have an eight percent growth in the value of what they own right now, but in the corporate world it's all about comparison. According to a story reported at money.msn.com smaller retail stores' stock prices have out-performed Wal-Mart substantially.

So, Wal-Mart is planning to open smaller stores. The number of Neighborhood Market stores will be increased. Wal-Mart Express stores, which are a tenth the size of a Supercenter, will begin to arrive in urban areas, as well. The big-box leader is seeking growth through little-box locations, according to a story reported at costar.com,which includes information on Target's smaller-store efforts, as well.
