Dear Dr. Schlegel,
In the attached report you will find the analysis of Wal-Mart/Sam’s Club as requested by yourself at the beginning of the class. I believe that you will get the information that you need. The report was designed to look at three main areas:

1.How the company benefits customers
2.How the company benefits employees
3.Community involvement
In doing the research I used my personal sites given to me by being an employee of the company. I reviewed how the company helps and hinders its local economy and gave recommendations as to how they could help improve functionality. I would be honored to discuss my findings in greater detail with you. I may be reached by email at sbheath@my.trine.edu or by phone at 765-532-7970 anytime between one and four pm Monday thru Friday. Sincerely,
