Wal-Mart Stores, Inc. (WMT): Here’s The Real Threat to Inefficient Retailers

Amazon.com, Inc. (NASDAQ:AMZN) presents the real threat to inefficient retailers. A customer might be willing to just try Wal-Mart Stores, Inc. (NYSE:WMT) another day, rather than drive all the way to Costco to see if it has an out-of-stock item, but why even do that when you can just buy the item on your phone on your way out of the store, and have it on your doorstep in two days?
