From modest beginnings in northwestern Arkansas, Walmart has grown to become a worldwide household name.

At the heart of Walmart's growth is the unique culture that Mr. Sam built. His business philosophy was based on the simple idea of making the customer No. 1. He believed that by serving the customer's needs first, his business would also serve its associates, shareholders, communities and other stakeholders. Our goal at Walmart.com is to bring Mr. Sam's culture and philosophy to the Internet.

With Bentonville's support, Walmart.com taps into many things that have made Walmart a universally known brand - like excellent supplier relationships, highly efficient systems, an unswerving commitment to Sam Walton's "Always Low Prices" philosophy and unrivaled retailers who strive to make the customer No. 1.
