Our stores

Walmart Supercenter

Walmart began building Supercenters in 1988 – a decision that led us to become the nation’s largest grocer. Each store is about 182,000 square feet and employs about 300 associates.

Walmart Supercenters offer a one-stop shopping experience for electronics, apparel, toys and home furnishings with the added convenience of a grocery store with fresh produce, bakery, deli and meat and dairy products.

Most Supercenters are open 24 hours, and may also include specialty shops such as pharmacies, banks, hair and nail salons, name-brand restaurants, vision centers or health clinics.

Walmart Discount Store

Since Sam Walton opened his first discount store in Rogers, Ark., in 1962, we've built hundreds across the U.S. 

Smaller than a Supercenter, discount stores employ about 200 associates and offer electronics, apparel, toys, home furnishings, health and beauty aids, hardware and more in about 106,000 square feet of open, brightly lit space.
