    Did Wal-Mart kill Netflix or Toys Rus.

    The answer is obviously a Big No. When Wal-Mart started to offer movie streaming, everyone thought Netflix was dead. on the opposite, Netflix survived, Wal-Mart movie streaming business was dead. Everyone think Toys Rus is dead also. However, check Toys Rus most recent annual report, their revenue has gone up and they are ready for IPO. Right now many people think Wal-Mart will kill spls. But I think that spls is harder to be killed by Wal-Mart than Netflix or Toys Rus.

    • SPLS is the second biggest online retailer so I am not sure what your point here is.

    • Possibly, but they need to find a way to be more than just and alternative to Walmart and Amazon.
      Their stores are almost as bad as Walmart's as far as trying to find help as they par down payroll to try to compete. They are having the same issues as Walmart as far as keeping shelves stocked with such light payroll.

      Both companies need to become less top heavy at their Corp. offices and add the payroll back into the stores. They continue to do the exact opposite, adding inane VP positions to oversee things the corp. officers should be doing themselves.
