Mobile Shopping Tools
- In-Store Mode: The Walmart Mobile App's most significant feature, referred to as "in-store mode," offers an unmatched capability to transform the store shopping experience. When customers arrive at their local Walmart store, the app changes its interface with features to help customers view local ads, access local store pricing and see the aisle location of products carried in that specific store. Walmart is the only major retailer to offer "in-store mode" across all of its 4,000 U.S. stores.
- Black Friday Interactive Store Map: For the first time and available later today, customers can view an interactive local store map on their mobile phones. These mobile maps enable customers to view Black Friday specials and click on these items to see the price, product description and location in the store.
*Savings of $1,000 specific to one item only.
Black Friday online specials available Nov. 22 and 23; Cyber Week specials available Nov. 24 through Dec. 2.
