Walmart Inc., based in Bentonville, Arkansas, is an American multinational retail firm that operates a network of hypermarkets (also known as supercenters), discount department stores, and grocery stores throughout the United States. Sam Walton launched the corporation in neighboring Rogers, Arkansas in 1962, and it was incorporated on October 31, 1969, under the Delaware General Corporation Law. Sam’s Club retail warehouses are also owned and managed by the company. Walmart had 10,524 stores and clubs in 24 countries as of July 31, 2021, operating under 48 distinct names.

In the United States and Canada, the corporation is known as Walmart, whereas in Mexico and Central America, it is known as Walmart de México y Centroamérica and in India, it is known as Flipkart Wholesale. Chile, Canada, and South Africa are all completely owned subsidiaries. Since August 2018, Walmart has held just a minority part in Walmart Brasil, which was rebranded Grupo Big in August 2019, with private equity firm Advent International owning the other 80% of the company’s shares.

According to the Fortune Global 500 list for 2020, Walmart is the world’s largest business by sales, with $548.743 billion. With 2.2 million employees, it is also the world’s largest private employer. The Walton family owns the corporation, hence it is a publicly listed family-owned enterprise. Through their holding company Walton Enterprises and their individual assets, Sam Walton’s heirs own over 50% of Walmart. Walmart was the leading grocery retailer in the United States in 2019, with US operations accounting for 65 percent of Walmart’s total sales of US$510.329 billion.

In 1972, Walmart became a public company and was listed on the New York Stock Exchange. It was the most profitable retailer in the United States by 1988, and by October 1989, it had surpassed it as the largest in terms of revenue. Initially, the company’s reach was restricted to the South and lower Midwest, but by the early 1990s, it had expanded to include stores from coast to coast. In November 1989, the first Sam’s Club debuted in New Jersey, and in July 1990, the first California location opened in Lancaster. The first main store in the Northeast, a Walmart in York, Pennsylvania, opened in October 1990.

Walmart’s international ventures have yielded varied outcomes. It has successful operations and subsidiaries in Canada, the United Kingdom, Central America, South America, and China, but its initiatives in GermanyJapan, and South Korea have failed.

Sam Walton, a businessman and former J. C. Penney employee, purchased a Ben Franklin shop from the Butler Brothers in 1945. His main goal was to sell low-cost items in large quantities at a low profit margin, portraying it as a battle for the customer. He had hurdles due to the extremely high leasing price and branch acquisition, but he was able to identify lower-cost suppliers than those employed by other retailers, allowing him to undercut his competitors on prices.

Sales climbed by 45 percent to US$105,000 in his first year of ownership, then increased to $140,000 the next year and $175,000 the year after that. Within five years, the store had made a profit of $250,000. When the lease for the property expired and Walton was unable to negotiate an agreement, he established a new store at 105 N. Main Street in Bentonville, which he named “Walton’s Five and Dime.” The Walmart Museum is presently housed at that store.

On July 2, 1962, Walton built the first Wal-Mart Discount City shop in Rogers, Arkansas, at 719 W. Walnut Street. Its style was inspired by Ann & Hope, which Walton and Kmart founder Harry B. Cunningham both visited in 1961. The structure is currently home to a hardware shop and an antiques mall, while the company’s “Store #1” has subsequently expanded to a Supercenter at 2110 W. Walnut Street, several blocks west. The firm grew to 18 outlets in Arkansas and made $9 million in sales in its first five years. Its first stores outside of Arkansas opened in Sikeston, Missouri, and Claremore, Oklahoma, in 1968.
