Walmart Inc. helps people around the world save money and live better – anytime and anywhere – in retail stores, online, and through their mobile devices. Walmart continues to be a leader in sustainability, corporate philanthropy and employment opportunity.
As an omnichannel retailer, we changed the company’s legal name from Wal-Mart Stores, Inc. to Walmart Inc. on February 1, 2018. The name change chiefly demonstrates the company’s growing emphasis on serving customers seamlessly however they want to shop: in stores, online, on their mobile device, or through pickup and delivery.
