Have you noticed that Walmart has become any less effective as a grocery competitor?

I've notice dairy is a bit more costly but i'd shop at Walmart for groceries if they offered gas points with a gas station and they were more convienient. Kroger is prominent where I live but most importantly closer and more conveinient to my hm location

Employee issues are big a social negative factor. They get less support of local communities.

Also, their price is no longer always the cheapest nor even competitive anymore. Plus the quality is always secondary.

They will loss the market share gradually if they do not change strategy.

I hear the same thing over and over again from many people. "I can't buy groceries at Wal-Mart because they are always out of so many items on my shopping list." Until they get a handle on their stocking issues, they're going to continue to hemorrhage grocery customers, which is fine by me, as they deserve any and all problems they have.

I think people are confusing their staffing and stocking issues with price points. However, they do have large regional competitors that are matching their prices penny for penny. It is just not happening on a national basis.
