Walmart Chile, previously named Distribución y Servicio (D&S), is a Chilean company that operates several supermarkets, including Líder, Express de Lider, Ekono, SuperBodega aCuenta and Central Mayorista.
In December 2008, Walmart Stores reached an agreement with the controlling group to acquire a majority stake (75%) in the company, which was then known as D&S. In January 2009, the operation took place, and after a series of public offerings to acquire stocks, Walmart owned 99.93% of the company as of March 2014. The company opened its first supermarket on April 27, 1957, under the Almac banner. This is considered the first supermarket in Chile and South America. Later, the company added other banners to diversify its value proposition: Ekono (1984), Lider (1995), Super Bodega aCuenta (2007), Express de Lider (2007), and Central Mayorista (2013).
The company changed its name from D&S to Walmart Chile on November 22, 2010.
