Save Money, Live Better?

It's what WalMart is about:

Sam Walton said it best,
“If we work together, we’ll lower the cost of living for everyone…we’ll give the world an opportunity to see what it’s like to save and have a better life.

Saving People Money So They Can Live Better
Saving people money to help them live better was the goal that Sam Walton, our founder, envisioned when he opened the doors to the first Walmart.

Today, more than 40 years later with operations in 15 countries worldwide, we continue to deliver that promise to families around the globe. It’s the focus that underlies everything we do at Walmart.

And for the millions of customers who shop in our stores and clubs around the world each week, it means a lot.

Save Money
We know that price matters to our customers, whether they live in the United States, the United Kingdom, Argentina or Japan. That's why we offer the best quality merchandise at the lowest prices in all our stores, from school supplies, to household items and top quality groceries.

We also look at savings that go beyond the prices you see in our stores. For example, we are working with our suppliers to introduce more energy efficient products that can save customers money for years to come.

And because every Walmart store or Sam's Club is designed to reflect the local community, our customers know they will find the lowest prices around on the products that match their lifestyle.

Live Better
Saving money is a means to helping our customers live better. By offering the best possible prices on the products our customers need, we can help them afford something a little extra.

Whether it's a grandmother who can buy her grandchildren a special gift because she saved money on her prescriptions, or a young family saving money to buy their first home, we see our mission come to life every day.

We also see opportunities to help people live better beyond the walls of our Walmart stores and Sam's Club locations. That’s why we support causes that are important to our communities, like education, and why we are working hard to do our part in protecting our planet and conserving our natural resources for generations to come.

It’s the reason why we joined with Mercy Corps and USAID to help small farmers in Guatemala, and it’s the reason why you see Fair Trade Coffee on the shelves at Sam’s Club. By working closely with our communities and suppliers, we can reach beyond just our customers to help improve the lives of people around the globe.

Saving people money so they can live better is at the heart of everything we do, and these are just a few examples of the many ways we bring that mission to the community each and every day. Simply put, helping people live better is more than something we do -- it’s who we are.
