Wal-Mart is a chain of huge department stores and warehouse stores founded by Sam Walton in 1962. This is the largest grocery retailing company in the U.S. The Wal-Mart headquarter is situated in Bentonville, Arkansas.
Besides the grocery stores it also operates the Sam's Club retail warehouses in North America. Within five years after the opening of the first store the company expanded to 24 stores across Arkansas.
One of the main reasons of its popularity today is that the store offers low prices. Wal-Mart took serious steps to open to a larger customer base by a more liberal merchandising strategy.
Besides the wholly-owned international operations, Wal-Mart encompasses joint ventures in China and has numerous majority-owned subsidiaries. As for Mexico, Wal-Mart's majority-owned subsidiary is Walmex. 53% of the Japanese Seiyu is owned by Wal-Mart, and 51% of the Central American Retail Holding Company, operating more than 360 supermarkets and other stores in Costa Rica, Nicaragua, El Salvador, Honduras and Guatemala.
Wal-Mart bought 116 stores of the Bompreço supermarket chain in 2006 in Brazil. Then, through its new subsidiary, WMS Supermercados do Brasil, took control over Sonae Distribution Group, and as a result acquired control over the Nacional and Mercadorama supermarket chains.
Nowadays, Wal-Mart has 64 Super-Bompreço store and 33 Hyper-Bompreço stores, 101 Todo Dia stores, and 24 Sam's Club. In 2010 Wal-Mart is the third largest supermarket chain in Brazil.
