Walmart's stores in other countries often go by different names. Here's what they look like and what you can buy there

Business Insider Logo By Rachel Askinasi of Business Insider | Slide 1 of 54: 
  
    Walmart
    has its hand in retail and 
    e-commerce in 27 countries worldwide, according to its
    
    website. 
  
  The company's first store outside the United States was a
  Sam's
  Club in Mexico City, which opened in 1991, according to
  
    its website. 
  
  
    
    Walmart has struggled to expand into markets abroad for
    years. Competing discount chains across the globe that are able
    to offer shoppers better prices and service shoppers with
    unique needs pose a threat that the company doesn't quite face
    in the US.
  
  After trying and failing at putting its own name on stores in
  certain countries, 
    the biggest retailer in America - and the world - decided
    to start acquiring or investing in existing warehouses and
    wholesalers to keep its hand in the international business
    game.
  
  Some locations, like 
    Brazil and 
    China, continue to be challenging for Walmart. 
  
  See what the 
    Walmart banners look like around the world and what some of
    these stores are selling.
