FAYETTEVILLE, Ark. — Few, if any companies, could put on such a big and bold extravaganza, especially in these times. The Wal-Mart annual shareholders’ meeting at the University of Arkansas’ Bud Walton Arena on Friday was equal parts self-congratulation, motivation and entertainment.
“Annual,” as the initiated call it, is a tradition. What’s more, Wal-Mart has much to crow about: global sales in fiscal 2009 of $401 billion and, on Thursday, the retailer said it will create 22,000 jobs, mainly in its U.S. stores.
