North American Van Lines: The Best of Bentonville Moving Companies
Tucked in northwest corner of Arkansas, Bentonville is pleasant town ranked as the 10th-largest city in the state. Originally named Osage after the Osage Indians, the area was renamed in 1837 by U.S. Senator Thomas Hart Benton. Bentonville - not to be confused with Benton, Arkansas - is the location of the Walmart Home Office, the world’s largest retailer, which has rebuilt Bentonville’s economy.
The population of Bentonville is 38,284, as of the 2012 U.S. Census. Since Bentonville hosts the headquarters of Walmart, it’s no surprise that the vast majority of residents work in retail trade.
Bentonville experiences a four-season climate. In the summer, temperatures reach the 90s, while in the winter they drop as low as the 20s.
