    The world’s largest retailer Walmart is considering making a bid for the Hong Kong supermarket business of Asia's richest man Li Ka-shing. Walmart may use Hong Kong’s second biggest ParknShop chain as a platform to expand in the country.

    Walmart is working with a bank weighing its options for a $4bn takeover of ParknShop ahead of the bid deadline on August 16, Reuters quotes sources. Private equity firms such as KKR, TPG Capital, and Blackstone are also invited to bid. Japan's Aeon, China Resources Enterprise Ltd, Sun Art Retail, and Australian retailers Wesfarmers and Woolworths Ltd are also among possible bidders, Reuters previously reported.


    Should keep stock transport costs down right?

    Well, since the name is a shortened form of Walton's Market I'd assume it wouldn't change much. They might not translate it at all.

    How long until Walmart buys Carrefour & Tesco and has a monopoly on supermarkets.

    People in Hong Kong would probably just refer it as "Walmart" than anything else.

    Just break a mirror in the back of the TV section of every Walmart, it's the only way to stop them.

    More like Li Ka-ching if this deal goes through.
