Further to your notes the definition of the thesis statement :

Thesis Statement should be a clear statement. It comprise of a Topic and controlling idea.

Topic is generic, and controlling idea is the specific way to handle the situation.

In the Thesis statement:
a) Try to avoid Active and action verb.
b) Try to use only linking verb.
c) Sometimes we cannot avoid using action verb.

In your example Walmart is a "Topic" and rest of the statement is the controlling idea.

I hope this information will be useful for you.
