Local Product Suppliers
Our Local Product Suppliers are subject to the same requirements as our National Product Suppliers, but the application process is a little different. Here’s how to get started as a Local Product Supplier.
- Contact your local store manager
Meet with your local store manager to discuss your product. He or she will take a look at what you're offering and decide if it might be a good fit for stores in your area. Find a Walmart store or Sam's Club.
- Wait to hear from Supplier Development
If your local manager likes your product, the manager will submit information about your item to their supervisors. The Market Manager and Regional Market Manager will also have to approve the product. The Regional Market Manager is responsible for submitting your information to the Home Office for processing.
- Next Steps from Supplier Development
If your product makes it to the Home Office, you'll receive instructions on next steps for submitting your item within our system. This will be an electronic process that will include the Supplier Agreement, so you must have email and computer capabilities.
- Wait for Walmart's final decision
Buyers make the final decision about who becomes a Walmart supplier. If a buyer agrees to stock your product, you'll become an official member of our Local Supplier program.
For more information about becoming part of our Local Supplier program, contact your local store manager.
