Walmart same-store sales off

Posted By on Tue, Feb 22, 2011 at 6:18 AM

I generally pass the procession of quarterly reports, leaving them to the business press. But I happen to note Walmart's report today on quarterly earnings — up company-wide for the period ending Jan. 28 (covering Christmas) against the fourth quarter a year ago, but down 1.8 per cent for the quarter in same-store U.S. sales and down even more at Sam's Club.

If Walmart goes like the country goes, you have to wonder about the economic recovery. There are, however, those who say Walmart is struggling because of competition and aligning its store inventories more with what its core customers want.

BY CONTRAST: Things were looking much better at Dillard's.

    It was not even 24 hours ago that Sophia Said, director of the Interfaith Center; City Director Kathy Webb and others decided to organize a protest today of Donald Trump's executive order that has left people from Muslim countries languishing in airports or unable to come to the US at all — people with visas, green cards,a  post-doc graduate student en route to Harvard, Google employees abroad, families. I got the message today before noon; others didn't find out until it was going on. But however folks found out, they turned out in huge numbers, more than thousand men, women and children, on the grounds of the state Capitol to listen to speakers from all faiths and many countries.
