Walmart's Vendorville Remod + Great Value Crawls Out

Checked in on Walmart store #100's remodel-in-progress today. According to a store associate, they're on day 17 of the remodel and 90 days are allotted for such things. Highlights are: Much wider aisles, better adjacencies (shoes behind apparel instead of waaaay in the back), brighter colors on outside walls (draw-the-eye- forward light blue and yellow vs. slam-on-the-eye-brakes grey), super clear sight lines. Store 100 never was a slouch; however, now it has caught up with the Rogers store #1 (the store that newbie vendors don't know to visit). Check my Twitter stream for pics www.twitter.com/retailxpert
