Part P.T. Barnum, part Billy Graham, his vision transformed shopping in America and made him one of the world's richest men.

See how Sam built his empire from a single store to a global chain in less than thirty years, sneaking up on established names like Sears and K-Mart and passing them by before they could adjust to his challenge.
