In the early 2000s, Walmart, the company that built a billion-dollar business model by opening massive big-box stores and undercutting competitors’ prices, started launching aggressive campaigns to open locations in inner-city areas. Walmart now has roughly 50 stores within a 50 mile radius of Atlanta.
