1) Make sure you search for articles no older than 2005.  The Film Walmart: The High Cost of Living was released in 2005. 

2) When you do your initial search put Walmart or Wal-mart in the first search box.  Some articles use Walmart and some use Wal-mart.  By putting OR between the two you'll get both.

3) Most databases will have a Walmart subject heading,   to help focus your results.  Look for the heading wal-mart stores inc in the subject options.

 4) If you are getting too many results look to limit your results with Walmart subject limter.   use the filed search option to search the keyword walmart in the title of articles.  This will narrow your results even more than searching by subject
