Ignite the change that changes everything.

Welcome to Store No 8. Our vision is to be the force driving commerce forward. We are making big bets on the ideas that will transform the future of retail.

Store No 8 is an innovation hub formed by the world’s largest retailer. As a stand-alone entity, we have created an innovation ecosystem where new ideas can thrive outside the existing definitions of retail. We have a unique vantage point that allows us a view into the heart of America to connect with what people want. The ideas we develop here are our big bets that have potential to change the world.

Story

Store No 8 is built on the shoulders of giants. We're here because of the innovators who came before us. Where others saw obstacles, they saw opportunities. Where others went one way, they went the other - because they knew that opportunity always lies in the opposite direction.

We're carrying on the original spirit of innovation that audaciously and fearlessly shaped the way the world shops, saves money and ultimately, lives better.

Named after an early store -- remembered by Sam Walton as an "experiment" -- Store No 8 is where wild ideas, impossible notions, and big bets become scaleable realities.

We're getting back to the heart and soul of those early days where passion fueled innovation, where "crazy ideas" were the norm and the only rule was to pay no attention to the way things were supposed to be done.

At Store No 8 we are hyperfocused on discovering the ideas, people and technologies that won’t just transform the future of retail, but will also change the world.
