Walmart on the top again
Walmart is on the top of the fortune 500 again. This will make Walmarts forth year as No 1. Sales for Walmart went up 11% in 2004. The company that came in second on the Forbes list was Exxon Mobil. Walmart is still holding ground. I'm sure that this will even maintain through this year. I'm actually very interested, with gas price going up, and people being more concerned about every dollar they spend, do you think that this will only cause more people to shop at Walmart? In addition, if Walmart does have to raise its prices due to these factors, will people be disappointed that Walmart didn't stick with their motto, everyday low prices? I think people will still shop there, because even if they raise their prices they will still be even or lower than competitors, but because of a little incline may effect the feelings people have about shopping there. I'm curious about what you think. If Walmart was the same as everywhere else would you still drive accross town, or shop around.
