What started as an experiment grew into so much more. Take a look back at the first Walmart and those who ran it.

So do you have any answers?  

So you were in Walmart retail for 30 years?  Where was that?  Why did you quit?  Did you quit?  Where do you work now?  Was that your entire career?  If it sucked so bad why did you stay?

Tomorrow, #Walmart will open our doors to better serve our customers on one specific front: adding more great products that support #AmericanJobs.

It's our first Open Call event, where hundreds of U.S. suppliers will come to our headquarters and meet with Walmart buyers. #WalmartOpenCall

"For me – and I’m sure, many of my colleagues – Tuesday will go down in history as one of my best days of work here at Walmart. Our Open Call event was like speed dating for suppliers of U.S.-made products, and our buying team worked hard all day to select some great new items that will not only delight our customers, but also create jobs." #WalmartOpenCall   #MadeInUSA   #usmanufacturing

Walmart sales have been relatively level or the last year. Earnings are also level. Walmart reports last quarters earnings 2/19/2015. Estimates are $1.53 per share. We'll see in a few days if there is a loss in revenue and/or sales that would make Walmart reevaluate their business,, but I doubt it. Shares in Walmart have "doubled" in the last 10 years and pay about 2.25% per year.

Just bought an Xbox One,, that should add about one millionth of one percent to their bottom line. OH,, Walmart has a Faded Glory Jeans SALE,,, LESS THAN 9 dollars per pair !!!

IF THEY DO NOT have my size,, (30x30) NO PROBLEM,, order them on line and shipped to my local store for FREE !!!! for the SAME sale price.  It does NOT get any better !!!
