Rolling out more Neighborhood Markets? If you look at press releases from 10-15 years ago you will see the same BS about Neighborhood markets. That was the big growth plan 10-15 years ago that has never panned out.
Costco's revenues and earnings increased. Maybe closing on Thanksgiving was a good idea. WMT's revenues and earnings will decline in Q4 and revenues for the full year will likely be flat to negative. Opening on Thanksgiving just stole from sales they would have got later. Obviously it didn't work.
