Here are some statistics that are sure to amaze…
Every week, over a third of the population of the United States visits a Walmart store.
Walmart sells more bananas than any other item. (about 1 BILLION pounds a year) Other big sellers: teen sports wear, yarn and Halloween candy.
Walmart, the largest company in the world, earned $485.7 billion in 2014, No. 2 Exxon Mobil earned $103 billion.
Walmart is sued more than any other company in the world, about once every two hours.
If all the Walmart parking lots were “quilted” together, they would take up an area greater than Tampa, Florida.
Walmart has 2.2 million employees which makes it the biggest employer in the world after the U.S. Department of Defense and the Chinese army.
The best factoid about Walmart is that their prices really are great. I order all of my shampoos, soaps and other non-perishable supplies online and have them delivered for free right to my door. And while it’s obviously not as interesting as going to the store in person..it’s definitely an easy way to keep the closets stocked.
