Walmart has pretty much saturated the market for super big box shopping in rural and suburban America. Their expansion plan now targets the cities. This will someday result in most urban Americans living within one or two miles of a Walmart store--putting them within easy carfree reach of a Walmart store. A new store on H Street in Washington, DC is one of the first of these stores to open.
The new stores are only about one-fourth the size of existing superstores, and have much smaller parking lots. They feature more fresh and freshly prepared food products to suit a faster urban lifestyle.
