Walmart yearly giveaway! $1,000 gift cards are running out fast. Today could be the lucky day!
Every year, Walmart stores around the country enjoy celebrating the mark of yet another year open.
Walmart was initially founded in 1962, but wasn’t properly incorporated until October 31st, 1969.
Known widely in the United States as one of the biggest multinational hypermarkets in the country, Walmart is never short of… well, basically anything you can think of.
Foreigners visiting Walmart for the first time are often shocked at the sheer size of the store (or perhaps a better term, giant warehouse) – certainly not a sight you’d see in Europe outside of IKEA.
By 1972, a short 3 years after its official incorporation, Walmart was listed on the New York Stock Exchange – and within 16 years, grew to the largest retailer in the United States.
Originally, it only had stores in the South and lower Midwest, but by the early 1990s there were stores from coast to coast.
Talk about rapid and impressive growth – no wonder the shoppers are loving the latest specials!
