Logistics. 一分快3走势图 Chavez flying across the Alps. I came home and went over to Oklahoma City, where we rented an old building for about ninety cents asquare foot, or maybe even seventy-five cents. We remodeled it and, to manage it, put together a pickupcrew of mavericks who were sort of underappreciated at Wal-Mart. We had two or three buyers. Wewhipped up a program and a design, and put the whole thing in motion. We opened our first club in1983. It had that same feel of chaos and excitement as the early days at Wal-Mart. And we went out ofour way from the very beginning to separate the Sam's Club culture from the Wal-Mart culture. One ofthe guys I picked was Rob Voss. He was not really looked on as a top management talent at Wal-Martbecause he was always swimming against the current more than he was going with it. He was a little bit ofan agitator. CHAPTER III.
