This Is the Only State Without a Walmart Supercenter
There's only one place in the entire U.S. where you can't find one of the mega-retailer's biggest stores.
No matter where you are in the United States, there's a very good chance that there's a Walmart in your neck of the woods. The mega-retailer is the go-to shopping destination for millions of Americans, with 4,756 stores across all 50 states as of January 2020. But the Holy Grail of Walmarts is easily the Walmart Supercenter, which is almost twice as big as a regular Walmart and offers a full-service supermarket. The large format makes up 3,571 of the company's locations across the U.S., which is 75 percent of all locations in total. But despite being incredibly widespread, there's currently one state in the U.S. without a prized Walmart Supercenter: Hawaii. Read on for more trivia, and before you go visit your local store, know that employees say This Is the Absolute Worst Time to Shop at Walmart.
Though it may not have a Supercenter, according to Walmart's corporate listings, the Aloha State isn't completely lacking in locations for the retailer. As of August, there are 10 regular Walmart discount stores and two Sam's Clubs (which is run by Walmart) in operation on the islands.
And while Hawaii may be without the largest format outlet of the mega-retailer, there are a few states that are not far behind. Vermont has the second-lowest, with just three Supercenters in the state; tiny Rhode Island has the third-tiniest count with just five locations; and Delaware is home to the fourth-lowest count of Supercenters in the nation with just six locations.
So which state in the U.S. is home to the most Walmart Supercenters? It may come as no surprise that Texas has the highest count, with a whopping 392 open for business all across the Lone Star State.
Walmart Supercenters are so coveted because they're often close to double the size (around 182,000 square feet compared to 106,000 for a traditional Walmart store); their grocery section includes fresh produce, a bakery, a deli, and dairy products; and, best of all, they are usually open 24 hours a day.
