Walmart's Neighborhood Market major threat to grocers

Rapid expansion of Walmart's Neighborhood Market format is a major threat to grocers such as Trader Joe's, Kroger and Whole Foods, according to Moody's analysts. Although traditional supermarkets have been evolving to compete with big-box supercenters, Neighborhood Markets are a different beast in that they offer Walmart's low prices but in small, urban store format, a distinctive advantage. The format allows the retailer to bring food, fuel and pharmacy products to shoppers in high traffic areas. Story
