In February 2019, Walmart was forced to consider alternatives to an intended sale to rival supermarket chain Sainsbury for a reputed $10 billion The U.K. Competition and Markets Authority blocked the sale as contributing to consolidation to the detriment of consumers. This potential and ultimately non-consummated sale was concluded in advance of a projected decline in property values following withdrawal of the U.K. from the European Union.
