Target cheaper than Walmart in August in study of 150 items
Target is living up to the second half of its ‘‘Expect more. Pay less’’ slogan by winning the latest round in its pricing battle with Wal-Mart Stores. Target this month had lower prices than Wal-Mart for the first time since October, according to research conducted by Bloomberg Industries. The chain also led by its widest margin since the monthly study began two years ago. The study examined the gap in average price across a basket of 150 like items at stores within five miles of each other.
