Wal-Mart's 2004 Expansion Plans

Watch out -- Wal-Mart will add 50 million net new square feet in 2004.

Wal-Mart's plans include "50-55 discount stores, 220-230 supercenters (including 140 conversions of existing discount stores to the supercenter format), 25-30 neighborhood market grocery stores, 35-40 Sam's Clubs and 130-140 international units (including 30 relocations and expansions.) California is the latest stomping ground for the company's runaway supercenter concept, as several of the concepts will open there in 2004."
