Wal-Mart logo 1981

In 1981, the Wal-Mart logo changed color to brown, the "Discount City" logo was completely dropped, and the font was changed as well. This was reused in Canada in 1994 which was colored blue to match its American counterpart, until it switched to its usual logo in 2001.

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.


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, however many of them are being remodeled into supercenters with the new logo below.

Walmart (second era)

2007–present (symbol); 2008–present (wordmark)

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, as well as the slogan and light blue color; however, the wordmark was not introduced until a year later.
