DISCUSSION QUESTIONS: Does Walmart’s core strengths plus the diversification of its business into other areas (ads, fulfillment services, et al) give it the hedge it needs to be more aggressive on price during the holiday season? How aggressive do you expect Walmart to be and how will that affect its retailing rivals?

Interactive Edge’s CEO, Zel Bianco comments, featured on RetailWire’s Braintrust:

As I commented the other day, don’t bet against Walmart.

Given their strategic work on fixing their supply chain, it will provide a big advantage over their competitors. It will most certainly provide coverage to their diversified portfolio of ways to service their shoppers and perhaps bring in new shoppers to the Walmart family.
