After reading your comments about the Amazon Infographic that we released two weeks ago (check it out here if you haven’t seen it), it got me thinking about just how big Walmart could be. So I started researching Walmart and found the information to be unbelievable…but, it makes sense since this Black Friday shoppers turned out to Walmart in record breaking droves. Within hours of Thanksgiving night opening, thousands uploaded videos online of the spectacular struggles over cheap TVs, waffle makers and baby clothes.
In the heat of the holiday shopping season, I’m taking a moment to consider where I spend my hard earned money. You might be familiar with the status: Walmart’s the largest grocery store in the U.S., the largest retailer in the world, the leader in global corporate revenue and the largest employer in existence. Still, these facts don’t do much to demonstrate the reach of this superpower.
