ABSTRACT
The article reports on the plan of U.S.-based retailer Wal-Mart to sell its private-label products in Germany, along with brands such as Special Kitty cat food and Great Value orange juice, cola, iced tea and tissues. A Wal-Mart spokeswoman in Germany said the retailer is in the development phase of additional private-label products but would not confirm the planned number of lines. Wal-Mart acquired 74 hypermarkets in Germany from Spar Handels AG and purchased British supermarket chain ADSA Group.
