Walmart Helps Customers Ace Back-to-School and Back-to-College with More Tools to Make Shopping Faster and Easier

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.
