Bentonville is not only a place to visit for doing business with Walmart, it is also a mecca for art lovers and, increasingly, a place to call home for many executives and business owners:
“Investments in Bentonville’s downtown by Mr. Walton’s heirs have given the city a cosmopolitan presence. In 2011 Alice Walton, Mr. Walton’s daughter, spearheaded the opening of Crystal Bridges Museum of American Art in a modern building designed by architect Moshe Safdie. The Walton family helped fund the opening of 21c Museum Hotel. Two of Mr. Walton’s grandsons, Tom and Steuart Walton, have more recently supported an extensive bike-trail network, dozens of restaurants and bars and a culinary school.”
P.S. 8th & Walton’s offices are right here in Bentonville, steps away from Walmart headquarters! We offer education and consulting services to the supplier community. Consider scheduling some time for a class or consultation during your next visit to Northwest Arkansas.
