Sam Walton named his first store Walton's due to a lease of a previous franchise expiring.
Walmart (first era)
Sam Walton named his new stores WALMART. The Walmart name was presented in just about any front/style available to the printer
In 1964, the hyphen (dash) was added between the L and the M, and the font was changed as well.
In 1981, the Wal-Mart logo changed color to brown, and the font was changed as well.
In 1991, Wal-Mart rolled out several prototype locations using a logo with a star instead of a hyphen and an entirely different typeface. This logo was only used on storefronts (all now closed or remodeled) and a small amount of in-store branding.
In 1992, Wal-Mart changed logo color to blue, and replaced the hyphen with a star. This is still used on semi trucks and some stores.
Walmart (second era)
A new logo with a new font was first used in late 2008. It was decided that only the W would be upper-case and the rest would be lower-case. A yellow 'spark' or 'sunshine' was added to the logo as well.
