More than 50 years ago, Sam Walton started the tradition of hiring the best and brightest when he opened our first store in Rogers, Arkansas. And since 1962, we’ve been dedicated to helping people in our communities save money so they can live better.
So, what’s the secret to our success? As Mr. Sam once said, “Our people make the difference.” Our associates have helped us expand our physical and digital retail presence. And we continue to redefine the industry – from new apps that help customers save money and smaller-format retail stores, to enabling easier, more efficient online shopping and our push to become supplied 100% by renewable energy.
When you walk through the doors of our company on day one, you’ll be greeted by a dynamic and supportive team. That’s because Mr. Sam built our company on a foundation of integrity, innovative business ideas and servant leadership. Today, you’ll find that the same family- and customer-driven values he introduced still hold true. We simply couldn’t do the work we do, on the global stage we call home, without being able to rely on and challenge each other.
We may have grown well beyond northwest Arkansas, but you can still find the Walmart and Sam's Club Home Offices in the thriving city of Bentonville, Arkansas (the nation’s 6th fastest growing region!). Surrounded by the beautiful Ozark Mountains and a rich, diverse culture, our associates experience a vibrant lifestyle. Learn more about our U.S. locations.
Walmart eCommerce combines the idea-driven, nimble structure of a start-up with the resources of the world’s largest retailer. That’s why we feel right at home with our headquarters in Silicon Valley, the global hub for technology and innovation. And we’re growing, too – with offices in San Diego, Portland, Sao Paulo and beyond. Discover more about eCommerce and our locations.
While we began as a small discount retailer in Rogers, Arkansas, today our reach expands to over 11,000 retail stores under 71 banners in 27 countries.View a full map of our locations and learn more about our operations around the world.
