BENTONVILLE, Arkansas - Walmart, the world's largest retail and food corporation has just announced a new marketing ploy for 2014.

Company spokesperson Kimberley Silverlace informed the members of the press that the company had recently hired a highly reputable retail marketing consulting firm from New York City.

The firm Butterbrick, Rosencutt, & Hempowitz suggested that the retail giant needed to do something to attract a wealthier group of shoppers.

They decided that the best way to achieve this goal would be for Walmart to begin selling exotically sophisticated food items such as sushi, tofu, quiche, and escargot.

So effective April 2, 2014, the Bentonville, Arkansas retail franchise will begin selling those specialty items in everyone of their stores.

SIDENOTE: The consulting firm of Butterbrick, Rosencutt, & Hempowitz is predicting that within six months Walmart's retail sales could go up by as much as 19 percent just with the addition of the four new food items.

The story above is a satire or parody. It is entirely fictitious.
