Difference between Wal-Mart and Target
Walmart, formerly Wal-Mart prior to 2008, is the larger retail company by far. Target is a chief rival of Walmart and in this determination, we will be discussing the quality of each. Walmart has made over $400,000,000,000 annually, whereas Target has only brought in roughly $64,000,000,000. What distinguishes the 2 markets from each other? What has created the whopping profitability that Walmart has obtained and why is Target so far behind? Both stores have reputable reputations in certain aspects of their businesses and I will show you the major differences in both stores.
Besides being one of the largest retailers of the world, Walmart is also the largest supermarket around. Most people need to find food at a reasonably affordable price and Walmart offers it. Target store falls behind in this arena because even though Target offers food items, they aren't as cheap as Walmarts. Target is widely known for being small and a sort of clothing and home goods vendor.
I walk around Walmart and I notice their humongous warehouse size. Sure, the size is more than accommodating when it comes to the various items being sold there. This makes things in the store harder to find when everything is so spread out and there are always a large amount of people there in a 20 foot line when it comes to checking out. Walmart does offer more than enough registers in which to check out but rarely are they all filled with qualified cashiers and the availability gets narrowed down to the point it takes forever to get out of there. Target is relatively a small place and it is easy to locate the non-biodegradable items and quickly get out. Walmart is noted for the large amount of people from different cultures and the like and seeing so many people there can bring a state of feeling uneasy being surround by 100s of people I have never seen before; plus, the parking at Walmart is horrendous at their busiest times.
Walmart sells what the people need at an affordable price which brings in more customers. Walmart sells various name brand items in toys, hygiene, food, electronics and clothing. Target focuses on home products and apparel. Although, Walmart pretty much contains everything that Target retailers have but they have them at better price and availability, Target does seem to have better quality items at a slightly high cost.
