Walmart’s meteoric rise is hard to fathom. At incorporation, Sam Walton’s few stores dotted across Arkansas in 1969. Today, 6,200 stores span the globe. Walmart boasts the highest global revenues not only among retailer competitors, but of every oil, industrial and tech company in the world. And with monolithic size comes controversy. While Walmart’s outrageously low prices save consumers billions of dollars every year, the company faces serious criticism for the weight of cost-cutting on employees, competitors, manufacturers and the environment.
On the heels of this season’s record-breaking Black Friday turnout, “The Weight of Walmart” serves to raise consumer awareness during our heaviest spending spree. With $5 baby clothes, $35 cell phones and $200 flat screens, Walmart’s deals are too great for American families to pass up. Frugaldad invites shoppers to consider the magnitude behind the corporation that makes our holiday more affordable.
