Was sent this by a friend who works for Wal-Mart and who checks data through Snopes so assume figures are reasonably accurate.  Go Wallyworld!!!



1...At Wal-Mart, Americans spend $36,000,000 every hour of every day.

2....This works out to $20,928 profit every minute!

3...Wal-Mart will sell more from January 1 to St. Patrick's Day (March 17th) than Target sells all year.
