New tool makes shopping for school supplies much easier
August 1st is the first day of back to school month at KHQA.
All month long we will be bringing you various stories to get you ready for the school year.
To kick off the month, KHQA's Hailey Vetterlein was live at Walmart in Quincy Wednesday morning to show you a new tool to help make shopping for supplies easier.
If you want to shop in store, Walmart's app has a new feature that lets you find your school and load the supply list right into the app.
That will tell you exactly where in the store each item is located, saving you time.
"You can get distracted pretty easily through out the aisles, you jump around throughout aisles. This app shows exactly where the items are with the aisle location," says Therese Neisen, Quincy Walmart Co-Manager. "I know all our families are pretty busy especially around the school year, you have a lot of different things going on. It saves a lot of time for families to just come in and go straight to the item."
Neisen says you can also save time by picking up all your school supplies using the Walmart Pickup Tower.
