Founded in 1962 by entrepreneur Sam Walton (1918-1992), Wal-Mart is the largest retailer in the world with a chain of 8,000 discount department stores.
Every week more than 200 million customers and members visit these stores in 27 countries as well as online.
The Wal-Mart Supercenter format is considered a "hypermarket" that stocks everything a Walmart discount store does but also includes a full-service supermarket, including meat and poultry, baked goods, delicatessen, frozen foods, dairy products, garden produce and fresh seafood.
This particular Wal-Mart Supercenter is located in the suburb of West Mifflin, which is southeast of Pittsburgh.
This store is open 24-hours a day, although the pharmacy has more limited hours.
Free, on-site parking is available.
