Random notes

  • Sam's Club generated $47 billion in sales in 2008, almost 12 percent of Wal-Mart's overall $400 billion in revenue. That is almost the size of Lowe's stores
  • Wal-mart's four store formats: discount, neighborhood markets, supercenters and warehouse (Sam's club)
  • Walmart's international revenue by itself is $100b. That is the international division by itself would still be amongst the top 5 retailers of the world.
  • Walmart has 11.3% of the US retail share- i.e almost like owning the entire Indian retail market
  • Carrefour is world's second largest retailer. (It is always easy to remember the first man in space or the first man on Everest. But the second ?)
India Retail
  • Wal-Mart has a tie-up with Bharti, UK retailer Tesco has tied up with the Tata group's Trent and Carrefour is in talks with Future to firm up an alliance
