INTERNATIONAL NEWS: Walmart Opens C-stores in China

06/25/2009
SHENZHEN, China -- The world's largest retailer, Walmart, broke into China's convenience store market recently with three new convenience stores here called "Huixuan," ChinaRetailNews.com reported.

With a store area of 300 square meters—about 3,200 square feet—the stores are a part of a pilot program launched by Walmart to explore China's fast growing retail markets, the report stated.

The Huixuan stores provide quality and low-price products to consumers, and products stocked will address the needs of different target consumers, according to the Web site.

The company has not decided a specific number of new Huixuan stores, a representative from Wal-Mart said in the report, adding if they perform well, the new business model could be expanded to other Chinese cities.
