I think I’m the only one that’s been paying attention to this for a while.
Walmart is getting ready to open up a few more stores, in what it claims will be its most aggressive expansion in the past few years.
And, of course, the company has plenty of money to do it.
The US retailer has spent more than $200bn on expansion since 2011, according to Forbes.
Its stock is up more than 20% in the last year, and Walmart’s quarterly profit jumped more than 50% last year.
And with a recent announcement of a $100m donation from Walmart to a foundation that promotes social good, the retail giant is looking to do more for its community in the coming years.
There are a lot of reasons to be excited about this expansion.
Walmart already has a huge and loyal following in the US, and the company is investing heavily in its communities.
For instance, Walmart opened a local store in Los Angeles this year.
That store has a large and active online community, which is a huge boon for the retailer, since it can help get its message out to those who are most likely to buy.
In addition, the stores will also offer a wide range of products from local farmers and local suppliers, including the likes of locally made chicken and turkey.
I’ve spent a fair amount of time in Walmart’s stores, and have a great deal of respect for the workers who do their best to make it a great place to work.
I’ve never been a fan of the kind of corporate management that some of the employees of Walmart tend to have, but I don’t think the company’s recent investment in local community outreach and outreach to its community is necessarily bad.
What’s really important is that Walmart is building a stronger culture that will make it easier for them to do what they do best.
That’s going to be important going forward.
Walton, like many big companies, is a big target for the rise of the digital economy, with the likes of Facebook and Amazon having significant influence over the way we shop and interact with our communities.
I think the best way to think about Walmart’s growth is that it’s been a big step for the company in the right direction, and that it will continue to improve in the future.
But, I’m not convinced this expansion will really help Walmart make a lasting impact on the world.
