A large retail chain started in 1962 by Sam Walton. His number one goal was to bargain with suppliers in order to buy goods at lower prices and sell them at lower prices to our fellow Americans. This proved to be very effective as the small store in Bentonville, Arkansas blew up into several stores and eventually a retail chain by the 1970's. Walmart was once a friendly environment, with good old Mr. Walton paying surprise visits to his many different stores around the country and working with every single one of his associates. He treated them like family, gave them the recognition they deserved, made everyone feel positive. In today's times Walmart is now the largest company in the world- except its prices aren't as low as many would make them out to be (Things are probably only a few cents lower than usual, maybe slightly MORE!) with Target as its main competitor.
The retail chain's goal is to bring products and services to customers at low prices. Problem is, production values have sharply gone down the drain since Sam Walton's passing (whoever's calling the shots thought it was fine to start making dirt-cheap crap in China, now no one wants to even buy clothes at Walmart anymore!), and that man made sure his stores sold the best products. Ever try Grapette or Orangette? Those two "Sam's Choice" branded sodas actually have a very long history behind them. Look it up.
Walmart. There's a fine caramel coating around the exterior... you'll find the real meat inside, deep within...
