A customer shops in the expanded baby department at a remodelled Sam's Club in Rogers, Arkansas June 3, 2010. Sam's Club executives have a new way to boost sales: the warehouse club unit of Wal-Mart is adding 24 imported cheeses to its product assortment, just one of the many steps it is taking in a massive three-year remodeling project called "Project Portfolio". Shoppers will also see more fresh product and meat, health and beauty items and baby-care products with the remodels.
