business news in context, analysis with attitude

The Street writes this morning that Walmart "is about to put the sleepy supermarket industry on notice," and will "have its new online grocery ordering option available in 100 U.S. markets, touching 600 stores, by the end of the year."

Walmart continues to maintain that "about 90% of online grocery users are repeat customers, and more than 90% of the orders include fresh grocery items such as dairy, produce and meat."
