The past year has been a good one for the Brazil Walmart.

On Monday, associates with the store learned it had won the 2011 Divisional Store of the Year award.

Store Manager Brandon Wright told The Brazil Times the store is one of approximately 300 in its division, which includes Walmarts in Illinois, Indiana and Kentucky.

"It is a big deal," Wright said. "It's a big award. It's really humbling. I'm really happy for the associates, and we have a great customer base."

Wright said the Brazil Walmart was the smallest outlet to win the award. There are eight divisions across the United States.

Wright said he found out about the award March 8, at the franchise's Fiscal Year Beginning Meeting, which took place in Orlando, Fla.

The Brazil Walmart also captured two Friendliest Store Regional titles in 2011.

Brazil Mayor Brian Wyndham added he was pleased the local store was recognized.

Gee I wonder if they are right,I sure don't see we are the friendliest store at all.

Congrats to all. Since not everyone (see previous comment by millie09) is convinced - try even harder. But customers should remember too that they are not the only customer this cashier or stocker has dealt with all day and they have probably had some real winners come through. In addition, everyone has an off day once in a while.

Walmart employees - keep up the good work and again I would like to congratulate you all.

In response to indianamama I am familiare with Walmart as I was a former employee and yes I have been berated by some of the past customers from rude people to a whold mess of liars.
