Watch the Growth of Walmart's Web

Watch a chain grow...on an animated timeline of retail history. Walmart's expansion is detailed across the US.

I grew up about 15 miles from Walmart's headquarters in Bentonville, in a little town called Springdale. We had one of the very first Walmart stores...and I've watched this merchandising phenomenon grow and change the face of American retail...and outsourced manufacturing.

If you'd like to see where it started, and how the Walmart chain grew, check out this animation on the FlowingData map.

This growth is testament to giving customers what they want...and focusing on one demographic ... the growing lower income sector of the South, the Midwest...and then the country.

Sustainable communities? You be the judge. I'm just glad that Walmart is finally making strides in reducing their environmental impact -- next, a more sustainable economic impact.
