Walmart slashing supplier orders as merchandise goes unsold – Bloomberg | WalmartHelp.com http://www.blueskyretail.com/2013/10/walmart-slashing-supplier-orders-as-merchandise-goes-unsold-bloomberg-walmarthelp-com/ Tue, 01 Oct 2013 14:52:38 +0000 http://blueskyretail.wpengine.com/?p=631

“U.S. inventory growth at Wal-Mart outstripped sales gains in the second quarter at a faster rate than at the retailer’s biggest rivals. Merchandise has been piling up because consumers have been spending less freely than Wal-Mart projected, and the company has forfeited some sales because it doesn’t have enough workers in stores to keep shelves adequately stocked.”

Home Furnishings News has reported that Walmart said it would open about 219 U.S. locations, including Walmart stores, Sam’s Clubs and its new smaller-format Neighborhood Markets in fiscal year 2013, the company told attendees at its annual conference for the investment community earlier this week.  At the same time, the retailer said its planned capital expenditures for the next fiscal year would be flat to slightly down from fiscal 2012, totaling in the range of $12.6 billion to $13.5 billion. Looking further beyond, Walmart’s projection calls for a further deceleration in capital spending in 2014, to between $12 billion and $13 billion.
