Can I park my RV at a Walmart store?

While we do not offer electrical service or accommodations typically necessary for RV customers, Walmart values RV travelers and considers them among our best customers. Consequently, we do permit RV parking on our store parking lots as we are able. Permission to park is extended by individual store managers, based on availability of parking space and local laws. Please contact management in each store to ensure accommodations before parking your RV.

Can I bring a service animal inside a Walmart store?

Walmart is committed to making reasonable modifications to its policies, practices, and procedures to permit the use of service animals by its customers with disabilities. Service animals play an important role in ensuring the independence of people with disabilities, and it is our policy to welcome into our stores any animal that is individually trained to assist a person with a disability.

Where can I find information about product recalls?

What is EPC?

Electronic product code (EPC) is the next generation of bar codes. An EPC label contains specific information about a product, such as its identity, the manufacturer, as well as a unique serial number that distinguishes one item from another. Walmart and Sam’s Club use EPC to better manage our inventory and make sure the products you want – in the size, color and style you want – are available when you need them.


Does Walmart price match?

Please see Policies section for more information.

Why is there a price difference between Walmart stores?

Prices may vary from store to store because each store is required to manage its own inventory. Therefore, a manager may lower a price to clear out an overstock item, to reward customers with an in-store sale, or to compete with local merchants. It is not our policy to price match our own stores since we are not in competition with ourselves.

If you would like more information on pricing policy, you may contact your local store management.

Why are prices different in stores vs. online?

The merchandise and prices available on our website do not reflect the merchandise and prices available in our stores. Currently, we do not have access to store inventory lists or price lists at this website. Please contact your local Walmart store manager for more information and availability.
