Wal-Mart Loses Prices Edge to Dollar General and 2 Other Dow Movers to Watch
Wal-Mart Stores Inc. (NYSE:WMT): Current price $76.00
Wherever one goes, consumers are trying to get the most value for their money. A Kantar Retail survey released on Thursday indicates that Dollar General is handling their attempts more than many other retailers, as the deep discounter took the top rank as the least expensive place to shop, narrowly edging out Wal-Mart Stores’ supercenters. For the second consecutive year, Dollar General has topped out Kantar’s opening price point survey, which found that its total basket, at $28.70, came in 12 cents below that of Wal-Mart supercenters.
