BENTONVILLE, Ark. -- Wal-Mart has refuted an Associated Press report that said the retailer is abandoning growth in the German market.
Maria Rodriguez, Wal-Mart International spokeswoman, said, "We are continuing expansion in the German market. That [report] is inaccurate. We're committed to that market."
She said Wal-Mart Germany has focused on remodeling stores, noting that the retailer renovated 24 of its 94 stores last year.
