Wal-Mart annual meeting to discuss business at U.S. stores
Bentonville, Ark. -- Wal-Mart Stores will hold its annual meeting in Rogers, Ark., near its Bentonville, Ark., headquarters on Wednesday, and said the meeting focus will be on reversing the decline in its U.S. Walmart stores’ business.
The retailer is also expected to share information about its upcoming holiday strategies and discuss capital spending plans.
Business has been brisk at its Sam’s Club warehouse stores, but its U.S. namesake stores have been on a sales decline for the past two years as continued economic concerns have slowed the typical Walmart customer’s spending.
