Jihad-Mart is a chain of stores created in 2002 to revive Mall-Wart's struggling Middle Eastern division. It specializes in low-priced explosives, AK-47s, burqas, ski masks (which are hard to find in the desert), Slim Jims, RPGs, and fezzes.
Jihad-Mart was founded by Osama bin Walton in 2002. Welcomed enthusiastically by the public, Jihad-Mart broke several earnings records set by the Taliban's telemarketing subsidiary, TeleJihad. People found the large selection of terror-related needs refreshing, a welcome change from competitors' small collections of pointed sticks and grapefruits.
Jihad-Mart quickly established a large presence in the Middle East, much to the chagrin of US-based competitors such as 9-Eleven. The number of Jihad-Marts in Baghdad alone is double the number of Starbucks found on the average New York City block. This astronomical amount averages out to 10 stores for every goat.
While the most devout holy warriors consider Jihad-Mart a necessary evil, most appreciate the convenience of ducking into a nearby outlet with minimal interruption to a suicide mission. Most stores carry a complete inventory of guns and weapons-grade plutonium for aficionados of hunting and fission, an array of halal foods and a full line of handy power tools for home and workshop, along with toys for jihadi of all ages. A complete line of stones is a best seller; they come highly recommended by clerics all over the Middle East, whether stoning infidels or women. Jihad-Mart also sells a wide range of Osama bin Walton action figures, many featuring ultra-Jihad declaring action and AK-47 and car-bomb sounds. The live-action "suicide bomber" figure is highly lucrative, due to repeat sales.

A bulk warehouse store based on the Costco and Price Club models, Osama's Club offers discounted prices on wholesale destruction, as well as quantity discounts on everything for home and camel. The full line of Saddam's Choice store-brand products are available in quantity.
The current best-seller in the Saddam's Choice line is I Can't Believe It Isn't a Weapon of Mass Destruction™. Introduced by Saddam and Osama just before the US invasion of 2003, the product has a loyal and fanatical following in key Middle East hotspots. The "Memories of Dresden" napalm pack has also been a hot seller.
As competition for freedom fighters and their dinars is fierce, Osama's Club keeps prices low. Indeed, the desire to reduce overhead is what led the chain to locate its corporate headquarters in a small cave, in an undisclosed location in the mountains near the Pakistan-Afghanistan border.
Osama's Club also gives financial support to community activities such as the stoning of infidels, donates car bombs to jihad groups, and most importantly, hosts lectures on bicycle safety. It has produced a few jihad videos declaring jihad on such things as "tighty whities," chrome hubcaps, most celebrities, and the Canadian Tire Guy.
Jihad-Mart's primary rival is the U.S.-based Target chain of department stores. Competition is fierce between the two chains.
From his mountain cave, bin-Walton is most often heard exhorting his troops (or "associates") to bomb U.S. Targets or destroy them utterly. This would seem to be an easy task due to the fact that the Target logo can be seen for miles. The Target designers thought of this and reinforced the walls of Target with jihad-proof rednecks.
Unfortunately, shoppers in these stores are often poorly-armed fat guys, with the result that hundreds or thousands of casualties are incurred in each attack on a key US Target location.
Interestingly, Jihad-Mart's second-largest rival is the fast food chain, Carl's Jr.
A Mecca for would-be freedom fighters, Jihad-Mart has often been the target of criticism from many in the region. They argue that the store has aggressively pushed smaller, "mom and pop" terrorist cells out of business and that suppliers are being held hostage to Jihad-Mart's pricing demands.
Jihad-Mart is notorious for its non-union workforce and for importing large quantities of its product from wretched third-world countries like Arkansas.
Jihad-Mart operatives, euphemistically known as "sales associates," tend to use aggressive marketing tactics — in some cases even more ruthless than the eventual tactics of the customers. Moreover, the large number of cameras deployed in Jihad-Mart stores has made privacy-conscious terrorists ill-at-ease. Still, the expansion of the Jihad-Mart commercial "caliphate" continues unchecked.
Jihad-Mart's ambitions stop at nothing less than world domination. Jihad-Mart client states have encouraged the chain's lawyers to use the laws of eminent domain to push the nation of Israel into the sea, making room for the largest Jihad-Mart store ever. This has drawn objections in the Israeli business community, but Jihad-Mart has more lawyers than all of them combined.
