I'm still waiting for a super walmart closer to my house; nearest one is in Vancouver, WA (30 mins away); the one they put by my house was supposed to be one, but they couldn't acquire enough land, and they where going to put one in Selwood but the city voted to not approve their new building there... Which is insane because there is NOTHING in selwood...
Well not being familiar with Tesco, are they only a FOOD store? Walmart does both Retail and Food, so it would seem that on the FOOD only I think they're saying that Tesco is larger but on overall Company wealth/size and ranking Walmart is much larger.
