Big Box Retailers Go on a Diet

Cabela's, Rona, and Walmart have become the latest retailers to move from big box to small box outlets. Cabela's wants to move into smaller markets. Rona's customers no longer prefer the big box format's vastness. Walmart continues to introduce its Neighborhood Market format to urban markets that have resisted the retailer's larger footprints. Regardless of reason, the store's financial performance remains paramount.
