Ron Mayer made special contributions, and Jack Shewmaker had as much to do with making Wal-Marta great company as anybody. John Tate has provided valuable counsel all along the way. Chapter 15 Thinking Small � 大乐透八等奖多少钱 Chapter 15 Thinking Small � "It was one of the few times we ever saw the chairman use his prerogative and say, 'We are going to dothis.' It was a new kind of proposition for Wal-Mart. At first we thought we were going to run everythingfrom Nashville, as a separate division. Then we changed our minds and decided to close all their officesdown and bring everything over here. It was the furthest out we'd ever been geographically, and, lookingback, I guess the decision to run it from here had a big influence on how we've run the company eversince, with all the regional managers based in Bentonville. � � � I generally liked my experience with Ben Franklin, and I didn't want to get involved in having to build acompany with all that support apparatus. So, first I went up to Butler Brothers in Chicago armed with myusual yellow legal pad full of notes and made a big pitch for them to back me in a discounting venture. Iwanted them to be our wholesale arm, our merchandiser. If they had agreed, our family could havecontinued our fairly normal lifestyle. In those days, I wasn't as fully committed with my time to thebusiness, and it wouldn't have been all that difficult to put together an organization with them. But theyweren't interested. Then I approached Gibson, but he already had his franchiser so we couldn't gettogether either. We really had only two choices left: stay in the variety store business, which I knew wasgoing to be hit hard by the discounting wave of the future; or open a discount store. Of course I wasn'tabout to sit there and become a target. Now, right down the road from Bentonville sits Rogers,Arkansas, which was a good bit bigger town, but I never could operate there because Max Russellowned the Ben Franklin franchise. I tried to talk him into going in with me as a partner and building a bigstore there. But he wasn't interested. � � In 1991, I had $228,000. I told my brother to show me anywhere else I could go and do that, and Iwould change jobs. If you have faith in this company, it's amazing how your loyalty pays off. I'm so glad Istuck to it. My money is going to send my daughter, Ashley, to college."Those are some of my partners, and we've come a long way together. About the same time we startedprofit sharing, we cranked up a lot of other financial partnership programs. We've got an employee stockpurchase plan so associates can buy stock through payroll deductions at a discount of 15 percent offmarket value. Today, more than 80 percent of our associates own Wal-Mart stock, either through profitsharing or on their own, and personally I figure most of the other 20 percent either haven't qualified forprofit sharing yet, or haven't been with us long enough to catch on. Over the years, we've also had avariety of incentive and bonus plans to keep every associate involved in the business as partners. Chapter 15 Thinking Small HELEN WALTON:
