Listen Now: Walmart Announces Big Changes for The Summer COVID
Families are looking for a little summer entertainment… and Walmart is accepting the challenge.
Summer camps are closed, school is out and children need a distraction. Now the retailer Walmart is taking a completely different approach to its business plan to help out. Known for selling everything from motor oil to fresh produce, Walmart is trying something new. Actually it’s trying two new things.
The first is called Camp by Walmart. In partnership with celebrities such as Drew Barrymore, Neil Patrick Harris and Lebron James, Walmart has designed a new virtual camp. Each celebrity will serve as a counselor and lead children through things such as arts and crafts and fitness. All things to keep your kids active and entertained. The camp is available now on the Walmart App.
The other option if your family finds themselves a little bored? Walmart is transforming one hundred and sixty of its store parking lots into drive-in theatres. This rolls out in August and lasts through october.
If your customers can’t come inside and shop, it’s time to find another way to bring them around.
