Whole Foods, Wal-Mart, and the Race to the Top

On first thought, Whole Foods Market (NASDAQ: WFM  ) and Wal-Mart (NYSE: WMT  ) couldn't be more different. However, they still ended up in a race for American consumers who covet increasingly popular types of products and corporate initiatives, despite the fact that they're polar opposites in retail style.
