Based on the values and morals of founder Sam Walton, the culture of Walmart is to provide customers what they want. In his autobiography, Sam said, â€œâ€Ś if you think about it from the point of view of the customer, you want everything: a wide assortment of quality merchandise; the lowest possible prices; guaranteed satisfaction; friendly, knowledgeable service; convenient hours; and a pleasant shopping experience. You love it when a store exceeds your expectations, and you hate it when a store inconveniences you, gives you a hard time, or pretends you’re invisible.â€?

Kohl’s not only offers the best merchandise at the best prices, but they are always working to make your shopping experience enjoyable. Kohl’s employees pledge to provide the best service possible. It’s their goal to provide an environment that is convenient, friendly and exciting.
