“Open Call provides valuable information to potential suppliers and offers businesses of all sizes from across the nation a chance at a big break with Walmart,” Walmart said on its website.

Applications are open until Monday, July 15. Businesses that are selected will be invited to Bentonville, Arkansas where they will join business owners from all over the US to pitch their products.

In 2023, merchants heard over 1,000 pitches from more than 700 businesses at the event.

Businesses that secure a deal to sell their products in-store and online with Walmart will reach millions of new customers.

“More than 86% of Walmart shoppers have said it is important for retailers to carry goods made in the US,” Walmart said in a statement.
