The phrase “too big to fail” could be aptly applied to the brick-and-mortar retail climate of today.
As various merchants wade through supply chain snags, climbing costs, and a resurgence of Covid-19, Walmart on Tuesday reported another quarter of rising U.S. sales, surpassing Wall Street expectations.
It is officially back-to-school season, and groceries are pretty much always in season. It’s those two categories in particular that lifted Walmart’s sales for the quarter wrapping up at the end of July:
The chain’s food sales grew $2.4 billion versus a year ago, as Walmart’s low prices and reliable inventory of meats and produce drew shoppers in.And comparable sales (those from U.S. stores and digital channels operating for at least a year), rose 5.2% in the quarter compared with the same period last year.
The solid figures put Walmart’s revenue $4 billion above analyst expectations, with CFO Brett Biggs reporting that the Delta variant hasn’t had “any meaningful impact” on the national business, as customers continue to pack stores this summer after “coming out of hibernation.”

The economic recovery simply hasn’t been good enough to pull Ashford’s hotels out of distress. And, judging by the slow recovery in business travel – in particular – any potential comeback may take years. Airbnb (NYSE:ABNB) and other disruptive leisure destination operations also continue to pick away at the tourist side of Ashford’s business.
- [By Jeremy Bowman, Toby Bordelon, and Brian Withers (tmfho]
I think another point worth mentioning is that Airbnb (NASDAQ:ABNB) and these vacation rental or home sharing sites have really taken off. Now your home is a monetizable asset in a way it wasn’t before, and if you can remote work, if you’re a single person, you can just rent out your apartment or whatever for a month and go travel and do that sort of thing. That may not be directly related to the housing market, but I think it might change the way people think of it, or, hey, I can buy this beach house and just rent it out when I’m not there. I think that’s going to also drive the housing market as well.
