- "Save money. Live better."
- ―Company slogan
Wal-Mart Stores, Inc., d.b.a. Walmart, is an American multinational retail corporation that operates a chain of discount department stores and warehouse stores. The company was founded by Sam Walton in 1962 and incorporated on October 31, 1969.
Following the collapse of the Weyland-Yutani Corporation sometime in the early 24th century, Walmart bought out the company. However, Weyland-Yutani eventually reemerged as a powerful corporation following the fall of the United Systems Military.
- Some fans have theorised that Dr. Wren was in fact lying about the "Walmart buyout" in Alien Resurrection in order to mask Weyland-Yutani's involvement in his Xenomorph cloning project, and believe that the USM is in reality just another branch of Weyland-Yutani at the time.
