In 1991, Wal-Mart rolled out several prototype locations using a logo with a star instead of a hyphen and an entirely different typeface. This logo was only used on storefronts (all now closed or remodeled) and a small amount of in-store branding.

1992–2008

Wal-Mart 1992

In 1992, Wal-Mart changed logo color to blue, and replaced the hyphen with a star. This is still used on semi trucks and some stores.

Walmart (second era)

2008–present

Walmart 2008

A new logo with a new font was first used in late 2008. It was decided that only the W would be upper-case and the rest would be lower-case. The yellow 'spark' or 'sunshine' on the logo was introduced in September 2007 on semi trucks and the company's website; however, the wordmark was not introduced until a year later.
