The United State of Wal-Mart

Wal-Mart is attempting to open it’s own line of banks inside it’s stores nationwide. They say they aren’t trying to compete with local community banks and aren’t interested in consumer lending. Sure… They weren’t interested in competing with local grocery stores or local pharmacies either.

<h3>What other businesses is Wal-Mart thinking about getting into?</h3>
