Fortune 500

Courtesy of Walmart




2018 was the year Walmart finally found its stride in its fight against Amazon. Equipping thousands of stores for grocery pickup helped Walmart increase its U.S. online sales 40%. Walmart was also deft in capitalizing on many rivals’ problems or demise (Toys ‘R’ Us to name just one), leading it to its best holiday season in years. The company is now innovating with things like a personal shopping service and self-driving delivery vans. Walmart’s success extended to its resurgent Sam’s Club business, as well as internationally, where it has decided to focus on a few key markets, all propelling company sales to 3% growth—and well past the $500 billion mark.
