I don't think I have any deep thoughts about this, other than that personal and anecdotal evidence tells me that too many Walmarts are post-apocalyptic hellscapes, but it's interesting.

Wal-Mart said Friday it will close 269 stores across the globe, including 154 in the U.S. The world's largest retailer also will open as many as 405 stores globally in the coming fiscal year, as it shifts its focus toward Supercenters and Neighborhood Markets in profitable locations.
