We have a simple purpose: we save Canadians money so they can live better. As Sam Walton said, "If we work together, we'll lower the cost of living for everyone…we'll give the world an opportunity to see what it's like to save and have a better life."
What We Do
Saving people money to help them live better was the goal that Sam Walton envisioned when he opened the doors to the first Walmart. It's the focus that underlies everything we do. And for the millions of customers who shop in our stores around the world each week, it means a lot.
Walmart's "save money, live better" purpose is relevant to every customer, every day, everywhere we have a presence. Saving money is a means to helping our customers live better. By offering the best possible prices on the products our customers need, we can help them afford something extra.
