According to Walmart customers, nearly one-third of parents want to avoid the stress of last-minute back-to-school shopping and almost half want to cash in on the seasonal savings. That’s why, today, Walmart announced its plans to help customers gain back time in a big way by launching new tools that make shopping for the new school year faster and easier. And with an eye on trend, the retailer is also launching more new items than ever before – at the best prices.
“Walmart has always been known for our low prices, but giving parents time back is also valuable currency when they’re deciding where to shop for all their back-to-school needs,” said Scott Bayles, Walmart’s Dean of Back-to-Class. “With more convenient ways to shop than ever before, thousands of in-store events and some really cool, new items at unbelievable prices, Walmart has everything customers need to start the school year off with confidence, style and ease.”
So what’s on the agenda to help Walmart customers go back big?
But, before the bell rings, Walmart stores are offering events throughout the season to help communities rally for a fresh school year and go back big. Walmart is hosting its quarterly Walmart Wellness Days event July 21 so that parents and students can take advantage of low-cost immunizations, vision screenings in select locations and the opportunity to speak with a pharmacist in time to have their healthiest start to the school year. Walmart stores will also join in Tax Free Holidays and waive sales tax on certain items in participating states so customers can secure even more savings. Last but certainly not least, Walmart will host nearly 2,000 Beauty Demos with L'Oréal and Maybelline so customers can try out best-in-class beauty looks.
