Sam Walton is the founder of Walmart and Sam's club stores (and probably a few others).

He died in 1992 after receiving the MEdal of Freedom from George Bush. He started the first Wal-Mart Discount City store in Rogers, Arkansas in 1962. They were highly computerised even in the 70s. Wal-Mart are among the first to start thinking of using RFID tags so that shoppers don't have to queue to pay but walk straight through.
Asda is an off-shoot of Wal-Mart and some of it's lines like clothing George at Asda are overtaking even Marks and Spencers.
