Description
This Walmart ID badge was worn by employee Valeda Snyder during the 2000s. The badge celebrates Snyder’s 40 years of service. Valeda Snyder began her Walmart career at the Walmart Store 14 in Lebanon, Missouri in 1960. In 2010 she became the first employee to work for Walmart for over 50 years and was part of a national advertising campaign celebrating her 50 years of service. Objects related to Walmart were collected for the American Enterprise exhibit to highlight how America’s largest retailer expanded to sell groceries, including organic offerings, amounting to 25% of all grocery sales in the United States by 2006.
