Introduction:'Everyday low prices' has been the primary growth driver for Wal-Mart since its inception in 1962. With several players successfully selling at low prices, Wal-Mart can no longer claim it as its USP. In 2006, Wal- Mart Stores Inc., the Bentonville, Arkansas, US headquartered retailing giant recorded its first quarterly profit decline in 10 years. Wal-Mart's domestic same-store sales4 posted a meager 1.9% points rise in 2006, which was the worst performance in Wal-Mart's history. Is Wal-Mart's business model running out of steam? Will Wal-Mart be able to resurrect its productivity and profits, and unearth its next growth pool?
