Walmart is THE place to shop for back to school supplies, but this year it’s for more than just the incredibly low prices. If you haven’t yet heard about Walmart Sensory Friendly Shopping Hours, I’m thrilled to introduce it to you! Be sure to check out all the Walmart School Supplies Deals Online that we found too!
Walmart Sensory Friendly Shopping Hours
For kids with disabilities, Walmart can be a triggering place for them – loud noises, movement all around, mounted TVs blaring various images, squeaky wheels, and bright lights overhead. It can be hard as a parent to find the balance between letting your kid enjoy the experience of picking out their own school supplies and protecting them from uncomfortable conditions.
But, Walmart has a solution. It is now introducing a period of time that is dedicated to kids with disabilities to shop. How amazing is that? Here are the details…
When does it take place?
If you are looking for a quieter shopping experience, every Saturday morning now through August 26, 2023, you can experience calmer conditions. It will happen from 8 a.m to 10 a.m. in most stores. Call your local Walmart to see if it is participating. For schools like New Jersey, New York, and Connecticut who start after Labor Day, sensory-friendly hours will begin July 22 through September 9, 2023.
What does it entail?
I love all that Walmart is doing during Sensory Friendly Hours. During these times you will experience…
- Static images on TV (no moving videos/images)
- Lower overhead lights
- Silence instead of radio noise
Who can come to Walmart Sensory Friendly Hours?
Walmart Sensory Friendly Hours were created as a safe space for all. No matter your age, gender, or if you have a disability or not, these times are open to you.
