Head to Walmart for all your Back-To-School needs!

Walmart is making back-to-school shopping easier for all customers. Every Saturday, from July 8th to August 26th Walmart will hold sensory-friendly shopping hours from 8 AM – 10 AM in most stores!

For areas that start school after Labor Day, these sensory-friendly hours will run from July 22nd through September 9th.

During these sensory-friendly hours, the lights in the store will be dimmed, radios will be turned down, and any monitors or screens will be changed to static rather than moving images to create a more pleasant shopping experience for those with autism, sensory processing disorder, and other sensitivities.

Since not every Walmart store is participating in sensory-friendly hours, we suggest calling your store to see if it’s being offered before you head out.

    Wow. I will have to check if my store is doing this. It would be even better if it was on a weekday when the store is a little less busy, but I am impressed that they are trying.
