Sam Walton created Walmart to bring affordable household products to people in small towns. He put the customer first, building a strong company with dedicated associates and deeply rooted values of service, excellence, integrity and respect for the individual.
More than 50 years later, customers in 27 countries around the world trust Walmart to bring them food, apparel, household goods and other general merchandise at everyday low prices through stores and e-commerce – anytime, anywhere.
Along the way, Walmart has grown into the world’s largest company. We have more than 11,000 retail locations, employing more than 2 million associates and thousands of suppliers who, in turn, employ millions of people.
Because of our heritage, we seek to use our scale and capabilities to help others – not only customers and other Walmart stakeholders, but also society at large. We accomplish this by:
- Creating economic opportunity for our associates, suppliers and people who work in retail and retail supply chains beyond Walmart
- Enhancing the sustainability of our operations and product supply chains for people and the planet
- Building strong communities where we operate
