Since the first Walmart store opened in 1962 in
Rogers, Arkansas, the company has been dedicated to making a difference
in the lives of their customers. Walmart’s business model and practices
are the result of Sam Walton's visionary leadership, along with
generations of associates focused on helping customers and communities
save money and live better.
Walmart as we know it today evolved from Sam
Walton’s goals for great value and great customer service. “Mr. Sam," as
he was known, believed in leadership through service. This belief that
true leadership depends on willing service was the principle on which
Walmart was built, and drove the decisions the company has made for the
past 50 years. So much of Walmart’s history is tied to the story of Sam
Walton himself, and so much of the world’s future will be rooted in Mr.
Sam Walton died in 1992, shortly after receiving
the Medal of Freedom, but his legacy lives on. Walmart still remains a
leader in the retail industry and is committed not just to expanding the
business to better serve consumers, but also to improving the
communities they serve through their efforts to constantly improve what
they do and how they do it. Through the impacts they are able to
achieve through the Walmart Foundation and through the daily dedication
to their business and customers, the employees of Walmart honor Mr. Sam.
