Walmart may use Hong Kong’s second biggest ParknShop chain as a platform to expand in the country. Walmart is working with a bank weighing its options for a $4bn takeover of ParknShop ahead of the bid deadline on August 16, Reuters quotes sources. Private equity firms such as KKR, TPG Capital, and Blackstone are also invited to bid. Japan's Aeon, China Resources Enterprise Ltd, Sun Art Retail, and Australian retailers Wesfarmers and Woolworths Ltd are also among possible bidders, Reuters previously reported.

They might not translate it at all.
How long until Walmart buys Carrefour & Tesco and has a monopoly on supermarkets.
[QUOTE=BCell;41745310]I wonder what's the chinese name and pronoucation of Wal Mart if it was translate to Chinese?[/QUOTE] People in Hong Kong would probably just refer it as "Walmart" than anything else.
Ha if only Sam Walton was alive to see this.
The richest family in the world is about to get richer.
Walmart will grow larger
Just break a mirror in the back of the TV section of every Walmart, it's the only way to stop them.
