Whether or not you are a Walmart shopper, you will enjoy these Walmart quotes.

Walmart Inc is headquartered in Bentonville, Arkansas, and was formerly known as Wal-Mart Stores, Inc.

The superstore, or hypermarket, was founded in 1960 in Rogers, Arkansas, by Sam Walton and his brother James “Bud” Walton.

The stores were founded when Sam purchased a store that was formerly a Ben Franklin store and started selling products at very low prices, with an eye on selling a high volume.

He believed this business idea would help the consumer and make his stores profitable.

Within the first five years of business, Walmart expanded to 18 stores in Arkansas.

By 1968, Walmart had stores in Arkansas, Missouri, and Oklahoma.
