To Serve God and Wal-Mart

I was really surprised to learn the history of Wal-Mart in this reading. I never knew that the company thrived due to Christian ideals, though it does not surprise me that the first store was in a rural community. It made sense for a store to market itself to the poorer, rural class rather than the rich, urban women. While these people don’t have as much money to spend, there are many more people looking to save money than looking to spend it.
