Walmart is a very popular retailer and offers a huge variety of products, food, services, as well as other cool stuff. In fact, during my first year doing demos through New Concepts in Marketing, most of my demos had me going to the Walmart in Marysville, WA (close to where the Tulalip Casino is). Walmart is similar to Target, K-Mart, Fred Meyer, and similar stores. They are usually big, come with many departments to meet most consumer needs (such as an electronics department, apparel department, gardening department, a MC Donalds, an Arcade section and plenty of other stuff. Super centers, such as the one in Marysville may also have grocery sections in them as well. They have things just about for anyone.

Products I have demoed at Walmart
For those of you who are curious, here are some products that I demoed at Walmart during the early days in my demo career:
3. Swiffer Wet Jet
4. Mr Cleen
5. Swiffer sweep and vac
6. Activia yogurt
and plenty of other products
BTW, Advantage Sales and Marketing does serve Walmart Stores (in addition to Albertsons), so there is a chance I could do demos at Walmart down the road.
