Walmart Celebrates Its 50th Anniversary, in Retail Digital

NORWICH, UNITED KINGDOM--(Marketwire - Jun 4, 2012) - For 50 years now, US store Walmart has problem solved, innovated, invested and rebranded its way to the highest heights imaginable.

Dominating all the relevant retail statistics in terms of revenues, profits, sales and sheer size has been no smooth ride though, and Bryan Roberts, Research Director for Retail Insights at Kantar Retail, knows the workings of the global powerhouse better than most.

Having spent more than 10 years as a Walmart analyst, he has now released a book titled 'Walmart: Key insights and practical lessons from the world's largest retailer.' There is no-one more fitting then to evaluate the state of the retail market and whether Walmart will still be leading the way in another 50 years.

"What Walmart have done on a number of fronts, especially in the US has really overhauled the perception of them from shoppers," Roberts states.

Retail Digital, the pioneering media platform for all things retail, looks into the influence that Walmart has had on the market while ensuring its own future as the world's leading retailer.

Bryan Roberts provides a comprehensive overview, not only of Walmart as a single entity, but at the state of high street retailing in general, and the trends that the industry need to be aware of, not just in the future, but immediately.
