More Wal-Mart Facts

Wal-Mart has 3,856 stores in the USA. That is one store for every county in the USA or one store for every 78,000 people.

Wal-Mart's net sales for 2006 was $312.4 billion dollars, about the cost of the Iraq War thus far.

53% of Americans live within 5 miles of a Wal-Mart store, 90% live within 15 mi.

Wal-Mart is as big as Home Depot, Kroger, Target, CostCo, Sears and KMart combined.

If Wal-Mart was a country, it would rank 20th in gross domestic product and would be China's 8th largest trading partner.
