One of the biggest questions during back to school is where to get school supplies for the best price? I recently had the opportunity to work closely with Walmart and I was very pleased and surprised by what I found. For those of you who aren’t keen on shopping at Walmart, stay with me. Even though I was sponsored by Walmart to visit my local store, meet with their team, and supplied a gift card to purchase our back to school supplies for the year, I have to be real with you. I haven’t always been a Walmart shopper myself; for one reason or another. After my recent visits to Walmart, I can say I enjoy shopping at my local store again. Faith Restored in Walmart I had the pleasure of sitting down with some of the team at my local Walmart to learn more about how Walmart prepares for the back to school season. Listening to their passion for what they do, it became clear that Walmart values their customers in receiving their school supplies for the best price. The team at Puyallup Supercenter in Washington State are especially excited over the hard work they put into their store and customers. I really enjoyed sitting down with their team and hearing about all of the new things being worked on for the Walmart app, how Walmart ensures the best products are available for back to school, and how their specific store operates. I especially appreciated that they took my perspective as a homeschooling mom and some ideas I had for Walmart to be a leader in opening a market to homeschooling families as well. There is something magical when someone like me can sit down with a larger corporation and really come together to bring business and buyer together for the best possible relationship for service, quality, and price. After some of the things I witnessed and saw with my local Walmart team, I am happy to stop at my local Walmart over some of the other boxed stores in our area. Walmart is really upping their game and creating a more inviting shopping experience in-store and with their app. Think GPS systems coming to Walmart that allows you to find an item on a map within their app. Genius!
