With more than 7,000 stores around the world, we know we can help people live better in each of the communities where we operate. We do this every day by helping people save money. We also do it by creating jobs and spurring economic development in areas that need it most, giving back to the communities where we are located, and promoting ethical practices on the farms and in the factories where the products sold on our shelves are produced.
As we’ve become a more global company, we find it increasingly important to maintain a local focus, while leveraging our global strengths. So, as we work to reach our full potential as a company, we are committed to fostering a culture of community – local, regional and global – that not only challenges us to be a better neighbor, but also lays the foundation for a future of sustainable growth – both in our communities and in our company.
