This is Derek Miller Speaking on Business. What started small, a single discount store and the simple idea of selling more for less, has grown over the last 50 years into the largest retailer in the world. Jason Sachs, Market Manager of Walmart, is here to share how their business model benefits communities here in Utah.


Our mission is for people to save money so they can live better — We utilize brick and mortar formats for the customer that still wants to shop for their items or quick needs in our Pharmacy and automotive service areas, as well as our online shopping where we can deliver purchased items to your car or directly to your home for free for Walmart + members. Walmart + offers great benefits like 5 cents off every gallon of gas at our Walmart and Murphy gas stations, Mobile scan and go, and free shipping. We also have a huge community program with grants averaging $120,000 a year.

The greater Salt Lake City area has been a strong focus for Walmart and our community involvement. We offer a strong economic employment opportunity to the community. Some of the benefits we offer to our associates are health care, 401k, discounts, and my favorite $1 dollar a day college education.


Walmart is doing more than just providing goods; it’s striving to help communities live better. Learn more at I’m Derek Miller with the Salt Lake Chamber, and this is Speaking on Business.
