Convenience Distribution Show Hits on Hot Topics

walmart's new environmentalism

Walmartis changing its image before our eyes. first, it embraced a robust generic pharmacy. now it is giving hugs to Green. From more environmentally architecture to its local-produce mentality, Walmart is giving chase to some of the elite grocers like Whole Foods.
