No matter the location or the format, all the stores in our worldwide Wal-Mart family remain committed to one mission: saving people money so they can live better. Our mission today is the same as it was when we first opened our doors 45 years ago with a store in Rogers, Ark. – what changes are the ways we work to fulfill it. As the world changes, we are challenged to find new opportunities to help people live better – sustainability is one example. Our Associates are an integral part of that. Today, we employ 1.9 million Associates worldwide and operate over 7,000 stores and Clubs in 14 markets around the world. Every week, they serve the 176 million customers who visit an ASDA, Mi Bodega Aurrera, Changomas, Neighborhood Market, Sam’s Club, Seiyu, Superama, Wal-Mart store, Supercenter or one of our many other formats around the globe.
