Walmart’s small formats in U.S. & Canada
Canadian Grocer magazine reported on Jan. 27, 2012—
“Walmart Canada opened its prototype small
urban Supercentre… in Scarborough, an eastend suburb of Toronto. The format–which
company insiders call “Urban 90” because the
store’s footprint is 90,000 square feet–allows
Walmart to build Supercentres on half the land
normally required. (The largest traditional
15
Supercentres top 200,000 square feet.)”

Other things to watch – format evolution
• High-end versus low-end – middle-ground suffers
• “Retailtainment” & “no-frills” drives store experience &
design
• Solution-selling store-design a key differentiator
• Format blurring: big-box add smaller formats & smaller
formats add larger; food retailers sell more non-food & nonfood retailers expand food
• Winners will align formats, assortment, promotions &
communication with shopper demand
