Wal-Mart Stores will open more small stores than big stores in the U.S. this year, underscoring not only that more convenient concepts like Neighborhood Markets are outperforming their larger sibling Supercenters, but a concurrent company-wide effort to use digital technologies to make those small stores behave like large stores when shoppers want them to.
Several presentations during media events at the retailer’s annual shareholders meeting in Bentonville, Ark., on Thursday reflected that theme, including a tour of Walmart’s newest and smallest concept, the Walmart to Go convenience store, and a review of plans for a 15,000-square-foot site dedicated to Internet grocery pickup, set to open here later this year.
The 5,000-square-foot Walmart to Go, carrying just 3,500 SKUs, offers the same prices on identical items from a neighboring 180,000-square-foot Supercenter. Its offerings include c-store staples like fresh coffee, soft drinks as well as hot foods to go provided by a local deli that’s set up a kitchen there.
The as-yet unnamed and unbuilt internet pick-up outlet will carry some 10,000 SKUs and be staffed by logistics employees at Walmart. They will assemble orders made online and deliver to cars in as many as 30 drive-up lanes. The concept is based on a similar offering at Walmart’s United Kingdom banner, Asda, said Judith McKenna, chief development officer at Walmart and a former Asda exec.
Bill Simon, Walmart’s U.S. CEO, said that he saw the opportunity to open the 42,000-square-foot prototype Neighborhood Market grocery stores at a faster rate than the 180 to 200 planned this year. There are approximately 367 such stores today.
The still-smaller Walmart Express model has about 20 stores today, and is still in an evaluation stage, Simon explained, although he expressed enthusiasm for a new unit in North Carolina “thethered” to a larger Supercenter, providing shoppers the opportunity through the Internet and mobile applications to shop the entire breadth of a Supercenter for pick-up at the small store.
“What we’re trying to do with Express right now is build a model that has the ability to project nationally,” Simon said. “Our numbers are really big in every respect and we’re confident today that Neighborhood Markets will have a positive material impact on the company, that’s why we’re going through with that [store growth].”
Back in 2011, a Yelper by the name of Alex B wrote an exclamation point-punctuated review of Snarf’s, a homegrown sandwich shop that got its start in Boulder. The sandos are really great, as evidenced by the fact that I’ve been three work days in a row!!” he gushes, but his review of Snarf’s begins with a shout-out to Potbelly Sandwich Shop: “A “Potbelly’s substitute has finally arrived in Denver!!! Until Potbelly’s decides to franchise here, this is the next best thing!!!!”
A romp through other sandwich shop reviews on the Denver Yelp site also reference Potbelly. “It’s my favorite Midwestern chain,” declares one Yelper. “Some day, Potbelly’s will come and drive all these other places out of business with their cheap prices and delicious hot subs,” boldly predicts Matt H, who then describes the sandwiches at Jimmy John’s as simply “average.”
Mr. H’s theory will be tested sooner rather than later, because Potbelly Sandwich Shop, which is headquartered in Chicago, is opening its first store in Denver, in the University Hills Shopping Center, which now has several restaurants, including Lark Burger and the Slotted Spoon.
Its original name, Potbelly Sandwich Works, started, notes the website, in 1977 as a “small antique store run by a nice young couple,” who then “decided to bolster their business by making sandwiches for their customers.” The sandwiches were a major hit, and in 1996, a guy named Bryant Keil — now the chairman of Potbelly — bought the original Chicago store, and has since gone on to open close to 300 Potbelly Sandwich Shops in numerous cities across the country, including New York, Texas, Oregon and Tennessee.

While metro Denver’s retail market is lagging behind the office and industrial markets — as is often the case in commercial real estate anywhere — vacancy rates have still dropped for the past year and retailers are leasing more space than they’re vacating, according to the first quarter MarketView report by CBRE Group Inc.
The average direct vacancy rate stood at 6.6 percent, Los Angeles-based CBRE Group said, while the average retail lease rate climbed to $15.48, up both from Q4 2013 and year over year.
“Driving tenant demand above supply levels again in Q1 2014 were fitness users, niche grocery stores and discount retailers,” according to the report.
The report keyed in on the elevated amount of investment activity in the retail market, with $72.3 million worth of sales in Q1, up 54 percent year over year.
“This gain is attributable to confidence in the market fundamentals and favorable lending conditions,” the report states.
Despite there being only 303,000 square feet under construction — compared to 2.1 million of new office construction and 3.1 million of new industrial space construction...
