In my house, one (or more!) of my kids have been known to be more excited about shopping for new school supplies than starting another year of schoolwork! I know first-hand that back-to-school shopping should be fun and affordable, and Walmart is here to make sure our customers won’t have to choose between what they want and what they need.
Ninety-nine percent1 of schools are returning to in-person learning this year, and families are focused on budget-conscious ways to stock up earlier than ever2. In fact, parents’ top priorities when shopping this year are making sure their kids are happy with what they purchase and being as efficient as they can with their budget3.
At Walmart, our customers don’t have to compromise. We’ve worked hard to ensure back-to-school essentials from Walmart are affordable so that the special additions – like a Justice glitter pencil case and Minecraft backpack – can make it into the cart as well.
And with an easy, convenient shopping experience, students and teachers can get everything on their list in one place.
