Today or tomorrow, you're going to end up at Walmart. Currently the largest retailer in the world, the discount department giant operates a staggering 11,000 stores in 27 countries and brings in over $47 billion in annual revenue. With over 245 million weekly visitors to its stores and e-commerce websites, Walmart must be doing something right. Be it the low prices or the convenient one-stop-shop format, Walmart is a popular destination for everything and anything you might need. You will find everything from clothing, home, electronics, beauty items and more at Walmart Canada.
It might be hard to believe, but Walmart was at one point a small discount store in Bentonville, Arkansas. Founded by Sam Walton in 1962, the business gained momentum through his tireless efforts to bring the lowest possible prices to his customers. By its 25th anniversary, Walmart was a $15-billion retail chain with over 1,000 stores across the United States and with no indication of slowing down it's spread. By 2002 Walmart was officially America's largest corporation and by 2005, the Walmart empire grew to include nearly 3,800 stores in the United States and 2,800 elsewhere in the world.
Walmart continues to enjoy success in every market it enters. With plans for further expansion, the retailer is not going anywhere anytime soon and continues to find ways to entice consumers with its low prices and widespread product offerings.
Not everyone enjoys the endless aisles, long lines and parking wars that comes with big-box shopping. Thankfully, Walmart.ca offers their extensive inventory of products online. With the exception of perishable grocery items, almost all Walmart products are available for purchase online. The website is user-friendly and the shipping is free with no minimum purchase! So whether it's a vacuum cleaner or a bottle of shampoo, your items will be at your door within 2-8 business days and save you the time and hassle of leaving your home. If you can't find what you're looking for at Walmart.ca, you can try looking at other department stores like Sears but the prices may not compare.
Bargain-hunters know that big-box stores can mean big-box deals. As a discount department store, Walmart's regular prices are already competitive, but the deals can get sweeter if you know where to look.
Walmart puts out weekly flyers summarizing the week's discounts. The flyers usually feature a wide array of items across most major Walmart categories. Find deals on groceries, clothes, furniture and many other items. Most weekly sales feature a 10% to 30% discount, so watch for discounts on everyday essentials and other household goods.
Walmart frequently marks items as "Rollback", meaning the price on the item has been discounted. Rollback deals are usually not featured in the weekly flyers, as the rollback price is not guaranteed to last all week. Since the price can go back up at anytime, good rollback deals are snatched up fast. But do compare the rollback deal with the original price, as rollback doesn't always mean big savings and is sometimes used by the stores as a way of moving merchandise.
Deals and promotions are great, but often don't compare with clearance bargains. Walmart has an enormous clearance section that can save you some big bucks on everything from toys to toaster ovens. The clearance section gets especially busy near the end of the season, as seasonal items are pushed out the door. Sizes can be limited and really good deals go fast, so checking back often is always a good idea.
Walmart doesn't frequently offer online coupons, but printable coupons occasionally do come up! Coupons are typically for use with the purchase of specific items and offer $1, $2 or $3 off. Some examples include:
- Save $3 on Otrivin Severe Congestion Relief
- Save $1 on Hormel pepperoni products
- Save $3 on Aleve Liquid Gels
Check for printable, item-specific coupons before heading out to a Walmart location for possible discounts on things on your shopping list!
Walmart frequently offers free Canadian shipping on online orders. The retailer is such a well-oiled machine that most orders are delivered very quickly, making online shopping with Walmart.ca all the more convenient. Free shipping offers typically exclude remote areas and large items, so if you're ordering a new bedroom set, you might be better off picking it up.
