business news in context, analysis with attitude

USA Today reports on a new data released by Placed, described as a service "that monitors the behavior of more than 150,000 American consumers daily," saying that "more than half of all shoppers in the country visited a Walmart location in March. No other U.S. store could claim a majority of Americans as customers that month." In addition, the story says, half of the most-visited retailers in the nation are fast-food chains.

The top-five most visited retailers are Walmart (visited by 51.91 percent of shoppers), McDonald's (48.4 percent), Subway (37.41 percent), Starbucks (31.81 percent), and Walgreen (28.53 percent).
