Wal-Mart to open small grocery stores

Wal-Mart plans to test smaller "marketside" grocery stores, which will be about one-tenth of the size of Wal-Mart superstores. The move is reported to be in response to a British grocery store chain's move to open similar stores in the U.S.

Wal-Mart's marketside groceries are expected to open first in Arizona.
