business news in context, analysis with attitude

During a trip to Texas for a speaking engagement, I had a chance to swing through Forney, a community about 20 miles east of downtown Dallas, where I visited a remodeled Walmart Supercenter that is part of a broader positioning effort to compete with H-E-B as it brings its eponymous stores to the area.

Sure, as you can see below, the aisles are wider … the graphics are bolder … but I must admit that I found the broader experience - especially as it concerns fresh food - to be remarkably underwhelming.  It may be big, but when it comes to fresh food, it is not, in my view, super.   (Though, to be fair, it does appear to be doing big business...)
