If one online retailer could ever challenge big-box retailer Walmart, it would be Amazon.com.
Amazon already surpasses Walmart in areas such as customer service ranking, acquisitions, online presence and — believe it or not — prices.
The biggest area where Walmart is still ahead by leaps and bounds is overall revenue. The retail giant bags more than $408 billion annually, while Amazon takes $34 billion. But Amazon is projected to close that gap by 2024, which is still admittedly a long way off.
And Walmart is still much bigger than Amazon in terms of sheer size and reach. With more than 2 million employees and a customer base of 200 million people each week — that’s one out of ever seven consumers in the market — Walmart is by far the heavyweight in this match-up.
