WALMART is making this year’s holiday shopping experience easier for patrons by offering customers new services and savings.
The holiday season services will only be available exclusively to Walmart+ members; however, non-subscribers will still see deals.

The superstore announced on Thursday that curbside returns and return pickups from home will be available for paid subscribers.
However, patrons can see “significant” price changes to essential holiday items such as toys, home goods, electronics, beauty and more.
“We listened to our customers, and the way we’re approaching holidays this year underscores our commitment to making holiday shopping easier, affordable and more enjoyable,” Tom Ward, executive vice president and chief eCommerce officer of Walmart US, said.
Ward added that the superstore wants to give patrons “deeper savings” this holiday season.
