    i see new WMT locations in Chicago

    How long before WMT puts WAG out of misery and buys them out?

    I say within next 3 to 5 years.

    • Take a look at Presidential Towers in Chicago.
      They have a WMT coming there.

      Robb google search this because the WMT store will be on the ground floor of a skyscraper. Seems different than WMT style.

      • Now that is Convenience in the Food desert Wave.

        Retail strategy has always been a strong point with Walmart.
        If they install a Insurance Kiosk let me know, that would be a game changer for revenues going forward.
        A one stop shop for Auto, Housing, Medical Coverage and food and drugs.
        An interesting idea but it did not workout to well for SEARS

        I quess we will soon hear that Walgreens intends to open a location in a Chicago high rise also.
        Is their anyone left that understands
        this business, To many MBA/consultants and too few Shop keepers, like yourself.

        Did you read UNH patient outcome results on M/O vs Bricks and Motar.
        A wake up Call, that i hope you are addressing.

        Whats your view on the Anouncement on AAC for the Independents vs CDS.

    • No I don't think this will happen,
      Walgreens viewed option without a growth direction is to go into a franchise system, I had spoken to Investment Bankers a few years ago who
      had a Financial plan going forward.

      Time will tell.
