#3 US Retailers Abroad

What is it with US retailers? Did anybody notice how many retail companies headquartered in the US have failed in international markets over the past decades. After about 8 years of trying to get established, Wal-Mart left Germany in 2006, fashion retailer The Gap pulled out of Germany in 2004, and Pizza Hut defected from Austria after having failed to meet consumers’ taste there. Are these companies’ services and products a simple mismatch with local markets or are the companies too proud and too ignorant?
