Ballmart is a recurring location in Squidbillies. The store is a parody of the infamous Walmart building. The building was first seen in its own episode with the same name "Ballmart". Since then, the Ballmart building has made many appearances throughout the series.
Several people such as Sheriff, Rusty, Krystal, Sheila, Bobby, Leroy, Billy, a man running the store's local pharmacy, and an unnamed employee, are seen working as employees there while citizens in Dougal County visit the store to shop on supplies such as food. The store also has its own security system with security guards and cameras.
Ballmart also has had its own share of problems and issues over the series such as Dan Halen banning the Confederate Flag, its own "Black Friday", Early bringing his sasquatch cooler into the store, while smoking up the store with gas, and the store currently doesn't allow freedom of speech or any freedom of any kind. The most-recent problem that the store has faced was a head lice outbreak, as shown in the episode "The Liceman Cometh."
Due of the lack of freedom in Ballmart, as shown in "One Man Banned", Early, Sharif, Tammi, and Glenn, as the Banisher, were all banned from this store for several reasons from Bobby. Rusty and Granny were also respectively banned there, also came out into the store as disguises such as a man and a horse to get morning-after pills from the store's pharmacy and sneak some diet Pineapple soda, which Granny needed, but we're both caught by both Leroy and Bobby since they we're no longer supposed to be in Ballmart.

This store was part of the main plot of the episode as Dan Halen pulls a gigantic Ballmart and drops onto the streets of Dougal County, where the citizens all visit the store. Early who worked there is conflicted with the fact that it replaces the convenience store that he usually robs. Rusty thought they could go on strike for higher pay and lower hours and even lobby Congress to give tax breaks for domestic factory jobs while later Granny wanted to file a an anti-discrimination suit. However, Early wanted to rob the place instead for the money. The store is said to have a long group of connected air-vents that was planned as it implies a gold mine of gold is located down the Earth's crust. There is also a confession room.

- Ballmart is usually located somewhere in Dougal County, as in its first appearance it was located in Dougal County. However, some episodes like "Cooler-Heads Prevail", have changed the location of the store.
- It could be assumed that Dan Halen created or built the store or even stolen it. However, in the episode, "Galvin", when Galvin mentions about going to a another Ballmart located somewhere in "Murphy, North Carolina", which implies that Ballmart is a global building made by a company or store franchise placed somewhere around America. According to Rusty, everything the store sells is from South America, which may be possible.
- Ballmart only appeared once in Season 9.
- Apparently, the store has a gumball machine and a soda machine.
- In "This Show Was Called Squidbillies", that gumball machine was replaced by claw machine instead.
