Wal-Mart CEO sees progress in turning around U.S. sales

New York City -- Wal-Mart Stores is making progress bringing items and shoppers back to its U.S. stores, president and CEO Mike Duke said Tuesday at the Barclays Capital analyst conference in New York City. 

Duke noted that improving the chain’s U.S. same-store sales remains its top priority. He said the chain is on its way to having the right assortment.

Wal-Mart's biggest growth opportunity remains the United States, where it is opening more supercenters and other types of stores, followed by the potential to expand in China, according to Duke.
