Back to School

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 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.

A Suite of New App and Online Tools for Parents, Teachers and Students – including a new feature on the Walmart app where parents can search and shop for their child’s actual list and then use the app to locate the store aisle the item is in.  Walmart is also launching a new Teacher Shop on http://Walmart.com and a dedicated section in more than 2,100 stores that includes classroom décor items and supplies, like stickers, reward charts, dry erase boards, markers and more.

Walmart is also helping college students outfit their dorm room with a new way to shop online called Buy the Room, which allows customers to add a group of items to their cart to shop a complete dorm look.

More Ways to Shop without Leaving Your Car (or Home!) – More customers will be able to get their back-to-school shopping done without ever leaving their vehicle, since Walmart has made Online Grocery pickup available in twice as many stores as last year and has doubled the assortment of back-to-school and college products available during the season.

Pickup Makes Packing a Breeze –This year, Walmart is making hundreds more back-to-class items available via Pickup, so parents and students can order all of their supplies and gear online and pick it up at the store closest to campus within seven days of ordering the item. Pickup will also be available for school supplies, offering parents a convenient way to get these items and other back-to-school essentials, like granola bars and new shoes, in one easy trip.

On-trend Assortment –Trending products like glow-in-the-dark and colored glue, paper from certified sustainable sources, FriXion Erasable pens, Rocketbook notebooks, emoji pencil cases and unicorn notebooks are just some of the many new products customers will find. All told, approximately 25 percent of the retailer’s school supply assortment is new.

A+ Prices All Season Long – As always, Walmart will offer incredible prices on school supplies, including 400+ items under $3 and hundreds more under $5. For example, customers will find Composition Notebooks for $.50, 100-Sheet Poly Notebooks for $.87 (Rollback from $1.47), 12-count Crayola Colored Pencils for $.97 (Rollback from $1.84), Crayon Boxes for $1 and 5-ounce Elmer’s Glue for $2.97.
