Growing from a single store in Bentonville, Arkansas which opened back in 1962, Walmart has become the world’s largest company by revenue in the intervening fifty-five years. Still a family owned business, the chain currently has 11,695 stores in 28 countries and it is believed to be the largest private employer in the world with 2.3 million employees.
But far more fascinating than the company’s background is the everyday life on its premises: its superstores often gather some of the most colorful characters of America’s cities and towns. In order to depict this phenomenon, a popular blog called People of Walmart documents “the many customers of Walmart stores across the United States and Canada through funny photos and videos”, and today we have a hall of fame collection for your enjoyment.
