Original Waltons 5/10 store


Left Little Rock to drive to Oklahoma - but took detour via Bentonville to see the site of the original Walton's store opened by Sam Walton who went on to create the biggest retailer in world: Wal-Marts (who bought Asda a few years ago). The original store is now a visitor centre - which includes the Presidential Medal of Freedom given by George Bush (snr) to Sam Walton.

Love Wal-Marts or hate them, you have to admire Sam Walton's drive and ambition.
