Wal-Mart acquires three grocery competitors in 50 U.S. states

Wal-Mart is finally acquiring 3 grocery competitors in all 50 U.S. states, which were Idaho-based Albertsons, California-based Safeway, and Ohio-based Kroger in July 5, 2012, which celebrates Wal-Mart's 50th anniversary.

According to some of the staff from Wal-Mart Stores, Inc., many of the supermarkets from three of their grocery competitors anywhere in the United States are being expanded and converted to Wal-Mart's hypermarket concept brand in 2012 and 2013, which combine more than 30 expanded general merchandise departments as well as a full-line supermarket. These include expansions in the U.S. states of Hawaii and Vermont, which means that the first of its stores will open there in both U.S. states by 2012 and 2013. As a result, fast-food outlets in all of these stores being converted from three of their grocery competitors can either be McDonald's or Subway, but sometimes others. In addition, mall-like areas in these stores feature local banks, the "Family Fun Center" concept, hair and nail salons, etc.; becoming as its own result from Mike Duke, the current CEO/chairman of Wal-Mart Stores, Inc.

As of early 2012, Wal-Mart will change its store-range size for the "Supercenter" concept from 140,000 to 260,000 square-feet, and with an average store size that ranges approx. 200,000 square-feet in all 50 U.S. states, which includes the first few stores that are each for both U.S. states: "Hawaii" and "Vermont" (which may celebrate 50 years of store operations from Wal-Mart Stores, Inc. when becoming a result from its current CEO/chairman Mike Duke).
