Everyone knows the reasons that people don't shop at Walmart, but what are 10 benefits of shopping at Walmart? With over 8,400 stores worldwide, Walmart is one of the world's largest retailers. There are many reasons to shop at Walmart, but here are the top ten.
- One Stop Shopping. Where else can you get your tires rotated, get new glasses, see a doctor, get prescriptions filled, eat dinner and get groceries all under one roof? This is a great benefit of shopping at Walmart.
- Community and charitable giving. Most Walmart stores donate money and products to local schools and charities. School supplies are often donated to local schools serving low income families. During the holidays, food is donated to local food banks, and gifts and toys are donated to military families through Operation Homefront. Relief was also provided for the earthquakes in Haiti and Chile.
- Price matching. Walmart matches the sale prices of local competitors, which is a great benefit of shopping at Walmart. With an advertisement from the local area, Walmart will match prices on identical products. This helps shoppers get low prices without traveling all over the city looking for stores.
- Affordable eye care. With in-store optometrists, getting glasses is made easy. Many affordable frames are available with the complete glasses costing much less than other stores. Walmart also has contacts available in their eye care centers.
- Good variety of products. Many varieties of products are available at Walmart. From quality generic brands to name brand products, shoppers can generally find the products they are looking for.
- Walmart.com. The store's website carries many items that the stores don't carry, which is another benefit of shopping at Walmart. Furniture, clothing, and lawn and garden items not found in stores can all be found on the website. You can even have them shipped to your home, or to the store.
- Site to store. If you purchase something from Walmart online you can have it shipped to the nearest Walmart store for free. Getting it from the store to your house is up to you, though, so if you bought that swing set, or a large piece of furniture, you better borrow a truck.
- Cheap prescriptions. Another benefit of shopping at Walmart is that many generic prescriptions are available for only $4 for a 30-day supply. This allows the elderly and others to save on their much needed and often expensive prescriptions.
- Wedding and baby registry. If you're getting married or having a baby, you can register at Walmart and get the things you want for a good price. This means you can put that lawn mower you've been wanting on your wedding registry.
- Entertainment value. A large variety of people shop at Walmart, from the well-to-do, to the less fortunate members of society. People show up to shop in all manners of dress (or undress, as the case may be). If you are feeling bad about yourself, or if you're just looking for a laugh, run to your local Walmart, and you're sure to see a sight that will make you laugh.
