business news in context, analysis with attitude

The Pittsburgh Post-Gazette reports that while Wal-Mart’s aggressive expansion in the market could get it to the point where it has a 20 percent market share, “Giant Eagle's aggressive use of price cuts and gas discounts” have kept that company far out ahead of the competition with a 51 percent market share.

Meanwhile, the Post-Gazette writes, “grocery distributor Supervalu, which had 26.6 percent last winter in its Shop 'n Save, Foodland and Save-A-Lot operations, dropped to 22.1 percent by year-end.”
