Wal-Mart Stores, Inc. operates retail stores in various formats worldwide. The company operates through three segments: Walmart U.S., Walmart International, and Sam’s Club. Wal-Mart Stores Inc.’s U.S. sales edged higher last quarter as changes in stores helped the retailer attract some of the shoppers who have skipped other chains in recent months. Sales at the retailer’s existing U.S. stores rose 1.5% in the third quarter, the fifth straight quarterly gain after a long stretch of declines.
