Walmart origins

Walmart, formerly known as Wal-Mart Stores, Inc., is one of the world’s largest retail companies, with total global revenue amounting to 514.41 billion U.S. dollars in 2019. The first Walmart store was opened in Rogers, Arkansas by Sam Walton in 1962. The company went public in 1970 as it continued to expand. With store growth came new store formats – the first Sam’s Club membership-only warehouse retailer opened in 1983 and the first Walmart Supercenter in 1988. The company went on to expand into Central and South America, Canada, China, South Africa and the United Kingdom. In 2019, there were over 11,700 Walmart stores worldwide.
