Walmart Same-Store Sales Up Again
Walmart has continued its continued surge in sales, as its same-store sales jumped 2.1 percent in January. According to the AP, the number slightly outperformed expectations.
While most retailers have struggled amid the economic downturn, Walmart has thrived, due mostly to its discount reputation. Sales went up 2.1 percent at Walmart stores themselves and 2.4 percent at Sam's Club stores.
