Walmart Brazil began its operations in 1995 with two supercenters and three Sam's Clubs in the state of São Paulo. In 15 years, the company has become the third largest retailer in Brazil. Two acquisitions propelled Walmart Brazil during this time: Bompreço's 118 stores in the northeast region of Brazil and Sonae's 140 stores in the south region.
With these acquisitions, Walmart Brazil grew from a two-brand company to a nine-brand company with multiple store formats. During the last two years, the company has grown organically by building new stores for all of the brands across 18 states and the Federal District.
The president and CEO of Walmart Brazil is Marcos Samaha. Our headquarters are located in Sao Paulo.
