Retailer touted as "Wal-Mart's worst nightmare"

Post by *THE Ben Reilly* on Sun Sep 08, 2013 6:15 pm

Retail analysts say the world’s biggest retailer has reason to fear a small grocery chain that’s based in Idaho and boasts a business model that allows it to undercut Walmart on prices.

So about that eye-catching Walmart quote. Those are the words of Burt Flickinger III, a widely respected supermarket-retailing-industry expert who works for the Strategic Resource Group. Flickinger was quoted in a recent Idaho Statesman story about WinCo, a chain of roughly 100 supermarkets in the western U.S., based in Boise, Idaho.

“WinCo arguably may be the best retailer in the western U.S.,” Flickinger says while touring a WinCo store. “WinCo is really unstoppable at this point,” he goes on. “They’re Walmart’s worst nightmare.”

Never heard of it before. Does anybody have a WinCo near them?

So, erm....anyway, moving on and five years later...forget “Winco” as it obviously never took off Rolling Eyes but speaking of retail, who goes to Costco?
It’s a big supermarket that sells loads of stuff and recently a friend bought six chicken breasts for three pounds and twenty two pence. Now I don’t eat chicken, but that’s a buck-buck-bargain! Right?
