Long before there was a Walmart, there was a Walton's 5 &10. It was opened by founder Sam Walton in 1950 in Bentonville, Arkansas. This five-and-dime store (so named because many items in the store cost as little as a nickel or ten cents) was very successful, and this game Sam Walton the idea of opening a different kind of department store. He did so in Rogers, Arkansas in 1962, and that was the first Walmart.

The corporate name is Wal-Mart Stores, Inc. The trademark (name) is Walmart. Therefore, if you are talking about the corporation you would use the first. If speaking about the stores, you would use the second.Walmart is how you spell it.

The founder of Walmart was Sam Walton. So Walmart is a shortened version of His last name and Market (Walton Market) which is Walmart.

The answer depends on what you're really wanting to know. -The first store called a "Walmart Supercenter" was opened in Washington, Missouri (outside St. Louis) in 1988. -Before that, Walmart tried a concept for a bigger store (the Walmart Hypermart) in Garland, Texas in 1987. A few more Hypermart locations were established, but the concept was dropped in 1990 because the stores were too big. -The first store Walton operated dated back to the 1940s, but the name Walton's or Walmart didn't happen until later. The first Walmart (Wal-Mart) store opened in Rogers, Arkansas in 1962.

The British supermarket chain 'ASDA' is owned by Walmart but there are no stores in the UK using the Walmart name.

Walmart did not always go by that name. Sam Walton believed that prices should be at a low cost to help people save money & live better. His first store was named walton's. Later in life there were stores opened called sams club & walmart

Sam Walton started and opened the first store and used part of his last name for the company name Wal, and mart which is short for Market.

The first store was in Bentonville, Arkansas! It was called Walton's. Or if you want to get technical the very first actual walmart is in Rogers Arkansas.

After researching Jo-Ann Fabrics, I would determine that WalMart did not purchase Jo-Ann's Fabrics. Their Articles of Incorporation include the First Article which states: FIRST: The name of the Corporation is Jo-Ann Stores, Inc.
