BENTONVILLE, Ark. -- Wal-Mart Stores last week said sales of food products continue to help pace strong sales and earnings growth at the company, based here.
In a prerecorded conference call discussing its earnings for the second quarter, which ended July 31, Wal-Mart said sales of food products grew 28% in the first half of its fiscal year compared with the same period a year ago. Comparable-store sales of food products "remain in double digits," the company said.
