Our Story

What started small, with a single discount store and the simple idea of selling more for less, has grown over the last 50 years into the largest retailer in the world. In Canada, Walmart was established in 1994 through the acquisition of the Woolco Chain and has grown to 400 stores nationwide serving more than 1.2 million customers every day. Walmart Canada's flagship online store, walmart.ca is visited by over 600,000 customers daily. With over 95,000 associates, Walmart Canada is one of Canada’s largest employees and is ranked as one of the country’s top 10 most influential brands.
