It used to drive me crazy when I’d see a post for a Walmart deal only to find that my Walmart had a totally different price than the one I saw posted! If you’re like me, you’ve probably wondered why that is. Well, Melissa and I sat down with our Walmart manager and asked why prices were so different, even between Walmarts located in the same city.
It all boils down to location, location, location! If your Walmart is close to a Target or other competitive store then the prices will be lower. The stores compete with each other for your business so the prices will be low. If you live in a small town or if your Walmart is the only discount store around then the prices are going to be higher because there’s no competition.
Now some prices will be the same no matter where your Walmart is located because they have a nationwide contract with some of their manufacturers.
Fortunately, my Walmart is close to Target and Crest Discount Foods so our prices are pretty good.
How does your Walmart stack up??
