Can't make it to a store?
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 Stores
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.
Walmart Neighborhood Markets
Walmart Neighborhood Markets were designed in 1998 as a smaller-footprint option for communities in need of a pharmacy, affordable groceries and merchandise. Each one is approximately 38,000 square feet and employs up to 95 associates.
Walmart Neighborhood Markets offer fresh produce, meat and dairy products, bakery and deli items, household supplies, health and beauty aids and a pharmacy.
The Walmart Express format was created in 2011 to offer low prices, convenient shopping, and our smallest footprint yet—an ideal format for urban and rural areas that lack access to larger stores.
Walmart Express stores are about 15,000 square feet and offer groceries, general merchandise and even pharmacies.
Sam Walton opened the first Sam's Club in 1983 to meet a growing need among customers who wanted to buy merchandise in bulk. Since then, Sam's Club has grown rapidly, opening more than 600 clubs in the U.S. and 100 clubs internationally. By offering affordable, wholesale merchandise to members, Sam's Club helps make saving simple for families and small business owners.
Sam's Club employs about 110,000 associates in the U.S. The average club is 134,000 square feet and offers bulk groceries and general merchandise. Most clubs also have specialty services, such as a pharmacy, an optical department, a photo center, or a tire and battery center.
