Walmart is helping America’s small businesses grow. Proud Source Water became a Walmart supplier in 2021. Since then, its team has grown by 50%, making it the largest employer in Mackay, ID. When local suppliers work with Walmart, their business can grow. In fact, two-thirds of Walmart’s product spend is on products made, grown, or assembled in the US. By working with Walmart, local businesses like Proud Source Water are able to grow more, hire more, and help their communities thrive.
