Walmart on the March

I feel like I’ve seen this in different form somewhere before, but this is a cool visualization of the uncool spread of Walmart across the United States, from FlowingData. Store count is in upper left, year is in lower right.

I’ve been riding right past Oakland’s very own Walmart this week on my commute. (“Right past” in this case means that I can see it in the distance, across a parking lot, even though I ride up the same street that Walmart is on.)
