July is almost over and it is time to think about going back to school! Laurie Smalling Letts, Senior Director at Walmart, joined us on the show to talk about back to school shopping at Walmart.

Walmart is the destination for all of the essentials. Whether you are looking for basic supplies, the latest trends, or the best deals on tech and dorm accessories, they have everything on your list.

Back-to-school season can be busy for families, which is why Walmart offers convenient ways for customers to shop. The back-to-class merchandise is available to shop in Walmart stores, on, and through the Walmart mobile app. They also have Pickup Today, Online Grocery Pickup and Delivery, Order and Hold, and Premium Delivery.

Along with having everything you need, Walmart works to give back to those in need. Don’t miss some of their upcoming events. There will be a Stuff the Bus Drive on Saturday, July 27th from 11 a.m. to 3 p.m. This drive will provide over 6,000 elementary school students with backpacks stuffed with school supplies. It will provide school supplies to more than 12,000 students total including K-12 students. It will also serve over 30 community schools and centers by using over 400 volunteers to make this event a success.
