Everybody knows Walmart very well.  It’s an American multinational biggest retail store corporation running its services in USA for more than 60 years.  Right now, Walmart has a chain of hypermarkets, superstores, grocery stores and discount stores etc. in almost 24 countries and has more than 10000 stores with more than 45 different names.

Walmart neighborhood market has been introduced by the company only a few years ago, so may be everyone is not familiar with this.  In 1998 this market was launched and the focus was to start its working in mainly urban areas.  Walmart neighborhood markets are not as big as Walmart supercenters.  Normally these markets are just 20% of the size of the Walmart supercenter.  As Walmart neighborhood markets are not as much big as compared to the real Walmart store, they have less stocks, smaller in size, no more variety, so there may be some products which are slightly high in prices but still it’s a better option to purchase grocery items and other household items from these markets as compared to other stores which are its competitors.  Except groceries and household items it has a focus on Walmart neighborhood market pharmacy hours.


Walmart started its operations in 1962 in Rogers, Arkansas.  Two brothers Sam and James were its founders.  In 1945 Sam Walton bought a branch of local retail stores.  His focus was to sell low price products to the people as compared to competitors.  His order was to increase sales volume by providing low price products.  Although at start he faced some challenges but later on he overcame over these hurdles and increased his sales volume every year.  Every year with the increased volume of sales and revenue he was able to expand his business volume.  So he opened the first Walmart store in July, 1962.
