Walmart is the world’s biggest retailer and has become the leader in hot spots.
But a new report from The New York Times says it is doing so by focusing on a particular market, and by targeting hot spots in areas that have historically been difficult for other retailers to access.
Walmart’s strategy is to focus on hot spots where it can capture more money and create more sales, The Times reports.
Walmart also has to work harder to stay competitive with other retailers.
“It’s a strategy that’s working.
They’ve got to be more efficient, and it’s a tough market,” John Lehr, the head of retail at consulting firm Strategy Analytics, told the Times.
The company has long struggled to keep up with rivals like Amazon and AmazonFresh, which are more competitive with Walmart and other big retailers.
Walmart has been battling for a foothold in the fast-food and grocery segment of the market, but has struggled with growing competition from AmazonFresh and other competitors.
The Times also said Walmart has focused on hot spot targeting in areas where it has a strong relationship with the community, such as schools, hospitals, churches, parks and shopping malls.
Walmart spokesman Josh Ritter declined to comment on the report.
