Do you know how big Wal-Mart is?


At Wal-Mart, Americans spend $36,000,000 every hour of every day.

This works out to $20,928 profit every minute.

Wal-Mart will sell more from January 1 to St. Patrick's Day (March 17th) than Target sells all year.

Wal-Mart is bigger than Home Depot + Kroger + Target + Sears + Costco + K-Mart combined.

Wal-Mart employs 1.6 million people and is the largest private employer.

Wal-Mart is the largest company in the history of the World.

Wal-Mart now sells more food than Kroger & Safeway combined, and keep in mind they did this in only 15 years.

During this same period, 31 Supermarket chains filed bankruptcy (including Winn-Dixie).

Wal-Mart now sells more food than any other store in the world.

Wal-Mart has approx 3,900 stores in the USA of which 1,906 are SuperCenters; This is 1,000 more than it had 5 years ago.

This year, 7.2 billion different purchasing transactions will occur at a Wal-Mart store. (Earth's population is approximately 6.5 billion.)

90% of all Americans live within 15 miles of a Wal-Mart

So, how many think we should just let Wal-Mart bail out Wall Street??

Wow...Wally World is much bigger than I imagined. I avoid Walmart as much as I can, we are fortunate to have a Meijer within driving distance, better quality and better selection. Hugs...Ann'Re
