Sam’s Club, a warehouse style membership club that sells groceries and retail merchandising in bulk, was created by Sam Walton in the 1980’s, for small businesses and individuals. This is around the same time that the first Walmart Supercenter opened, offering supermarket items and retail merchandise in one location.┬áIn the 1990’s, Walmart was named America’s Number 1 Retailer, offering low prices and one-stop shopping. The first Walmart Supercenter was opened in Missouri in 1988, and then went global in the 90’s with store openings in Mexico, Canada, China and India.

The Walmart Supercenter is a hypermarket that carries all Walmart merchandise in addition to being a full supermarket. Walmart Supercenters have every supermarket department, from poultry/meats, dairy, baked goods, deli, frozen foods to garden produce.

    According to Wieman Products, LLC, (1-800-837-8140) Wal-Mart should have Weiman Metal Polish in stock. I have not been able to locate this product at any of the Wal-Mart stores in Greenville, SC. I was also told that Ace Hardware could supply this particular product. Neither could furnish the metal polish. Please advise as to where I may be able to locate a store in my area that can supply Weiman Metal Polish.

    Thank you.
