Walmart: net sales worldwide FY2008-FY2021, by division

Walmart International's net sales amounted to around 121 billion U.S. dollars in the fiscal year ended January 31, 2021. Meanwhile, Sam's Club had net sales amounting to about 64 billion U.S. dollars.


Wal-Mart was founded in 1962 by Sam Walton when he and his brother James “Bud” Walton opened the first Wal-Mart Discount City in Rogers, Arkansas. Since then, Wal-Mart has grown to become the largest publicly-owned retail company in the world. In the United States, the company includes Wal-Mart discount stores, Supercenters, Neighborhood Markets, and Sam’s Club warehouse membership clubs. The company also has many international operations. Wal-Mart is considered a variety store which focuses on low prices featuring apparel as well as hard goods, and has been committed to upholding their basic value of customer service.

Beginning in the early 1990s, Wal-Mart went to great lengths to increase their market share. They introduced a full line of groceries into their stores, diversified their market by appealing to certain ethnic groups through bilingual advertisements, and took steps to promote the awareness of environmental issues.

As of 2021, Wal-Mart operated over 11,800 stores worldwide of which 11,443 were retail units. As of that year, the company generated over 555 billion U.S. dollars in net sales.
