Formed in 2017, Store Nº8 exists to incubate companies that are developing the next generation capabilities we believe have the potential to transform the future of retail.
Ready, Set, Scale
WHAT WE DO
Our portfolio companies are developing next-gen capabilities enabled by emerging technologies. They operate as stand-alone startups with the goal of creating strategic assets for Walmart in the long-term.
Capabilities Before Technologies
HOW WE DO IT
Our process begins with a thesis around a next generation capability that will be critical to the future of shopping. We then apply the emerging technologies that can enable the experience we want to create.
WHY WE EXIST
We have the opportunity to make a positive impact on a massive scale. 160 million Americans shop Walmart every week. We want to be ready for all the new ways and new touchpoints that customers will use to engage with brands and shop in the future.
Built on the
Shoulders of Giants
Sam Walton. The original innovator, fearless entrepreneur and retail rock star. He wanted to buck the system and push things beyond where they've been. We do too.
When it comes to transforming the future of retail, Sam wrote the book.
