I was born and raised in Arkansas. I went to basketball games inside the University of Arkansas’ Bud Walton Arena and attended classes inside the Sam M. Walton College of Business. Walmart isn’t just a store for most Arkansans, it’s something that put the state on the map for something other than a bad football team or President Bill Clinton.

Walmart is truly a fascinating business and it is even more fascinating when it analyzes its own data to see what its customers are buying. The company recently reviewed data from Walmart.com and shared the top-selling items in every state with
Business Insider. Per the usual, the results are interesting and somewhat revealing.
