The ongoing clash of the titans between Amazon and Walmart has entered a new arena: the grocery aisle. The two giants have long battled — Amazon (AMZN) dominating the online market, Walmart (WMT) the reigning king of brick-and-mortar retail — for customers by using rock-bottom pricing on staples ranging from bicycles to body wash. According to data provided by Chain Store Guide, Walmart's network of 3,522 stores, which have increasingly rolled out new grocery options, is by far the largest retail portfolio in the country.
Sprouts Farmers Market (SFM) has successfully survived deflation and rising competition, posting 40 consecutive quarters of positive sales comps.
Arizona-based Sprouts Farmers Market (SFM) is slated to release its 2Q17 results on August 3. Its total sales are expected to rise 12.9% year-over-year to ~$1.2 billion.
