Fur, this is one answer I got from someone on the WMT MF Board. Looks like a smaller version of the supercenters but being the same size as a regular Wal-Mart. Not sure how this could play out for AMES since I don't know the target customer for these stores. If I get anymore answers I will forward them to this board.

-------------------------------------------------------

Its not unusual to find WMT stores in the midwest under 40,000 sq. ft. as they have existed for many years in smaller towns.

The new trend is to relocate many of these, since there usually isn't room at the current location, and build Supercenter's. They have prototype sizes of these smaller Supercenter's ranging from about 80,000 to 110,000 sq. ft.

So, to answer your question in the simplest sense, they are building smaller stores with grocery in smaller places, but they are about the size of what a regular WMT without grocery would be in a town of about 20,000 people or more.
