Walmart Inc. (WMT) is one of the most successful retail businesses in the world, and it has had a major impact on the way we shop, eat, drink, buy and work in our daily lives.
Walmart, as a brand, has always been at the heart of our retail experience.
The retail giant is now known for a wide array of products that we enjoy, including its iconic blue and red Walmart T-shirts and clothing.
The retailer is also known for its large-scale, long-distance stores, the largest of which is located in Bentonville, Arkansas.
This article focuses on the history of Walmart from the earliest days of the company to today.
Walmart was founded in 1902, and in 1894, its first store opened in Walnut Creek, California.
Walmart began expanding its stores in the 1950s and 1960s.
By the late 1980s, Walmart had more than 3,000 stores in 46 states.
Today, the company is the largest privately held U.S. retailer, and more than 10 percent of all U.A.E. households own some kind of merchandise.
Here are some of the key dates and milestones in Walmart’s history: Walmart started as a single store in 1902.
At the time, only two or three stores were in operation in the United States.
The first store in Walworth, New York, opened in 1882.

In the early days, it was a single-store business.
