with Walmart World

Our goal with Walmart World is to shine a light on the amazing associates who make up this company, and help them share their stories. So before each adventure to visit stores, we hit up a market manager to find out where to go and whom to meet.

A recent trip took us to the Pacific Northwest, where Tom M., manager of Market 467, gave us enough intel for a five-day journey up the I-5 from Portland, Ore., to Seattle, Wash. We met associates with an amazing range of stories.

 

We are proud to share some of those stories with you (along with many other stories from across the country). And we can’t wait to get out and meet many more of you soon!

We could have met Stacie S. at any of the stores in this market—she’s touched so many over the course of her career. Instead, we followed her along the quiet hills above the water to a quaint town just a short drive from Store 3537. This is a place she goes to escape, to recharge, and to just sit quietly and enjoy the beautiful views of the Sound.
We took a walk with Reed R. to find out how his perseverance and risk-taking led to an empowered team and increased sales on items not normally found in a Neighborhood Market.
Store Manager Kim S. & Betsy Johnson, an Oregon state senator, have been working together since before Store 5861 opened, both with a commitment to the well-being of the port city of Warrenton, where we met so many people impacted by the store’s courageous approach to hiring local talent.
