WASHINGTON, March 16 (Reuters) - The U.S. Federal Deposit Insurance Corp. said on Friday that Wal-Mart Stores Inc. WMT.N will withdraw an application to open a specialty bank.
“Wal-Mart made a wise choice,” FDIC Chairman Sheila Bair said in a statement. “This decision will remove the controversy surrounding their intentions.”
