Sam Walton

Known as the Bargain Basement Billionaire, Samuel Moore Walton single-handedly built Walt Mart into one of the biggest retailer stores in the world shaping up America’s shopping experience. Walton started his journey when he took a sales trainee job at the JC Penney store in Iowa. His work experience made him realize how customers should be treated right. After his successful business venture with a Ben Franklin variety store and lost its lease, Walton decided to put up a shop in a store in Bentonville, Arkansas. With his talent in handling a business, he managed to open his first Wal-Mart in Rogers, Arkansas. The retail store was a big hit to the customers, and through time, with careful decisions and plans, it became the nation’s biggest retailer.
