America! What is wrong with you? Despite the fact that Wal-Mart is the only store of any size left in your post-apocalyptic economically decimated little towns, Wal-Mart's sales have been falling for two years now. Important update: it's getting worse!
Or better, depending on how much you hate Wal-Mart and The American Way. Bloomberg got an internal Wal-Mart memo, which reveals that the company's big "get everyone to buy some Hanes socks while they're picking up Pop-Tarts" strategy is not paying off. Store visits have dropped another 2.6% since February, while traffic is up at WM competitors ranging from Target to Kroger to depressing Dollar stores.
