We’re getting into the season of the Walmart patio.
The Walmart patio is one of the many outdoor spaces that will be opening for summer, and it’s a big deal to most of us because it means we’ll be able to play on it without worrying about being stuck inside for hours at a time.
Here’s how to get going, and what you’ll need to know before you go.
The Walmart Patio in Downtown Miami: 1.
What’s a Walmart patio?
A Walmart patio has two major functions: It’s the outdoor living area for employees and guests who live in it, and also a place to hang out with friends and family.
“The Walmart was the first retail outlet that I’ve ever been to where I was able to walk to work, go home, and have my day,” says Joe Gagliardi, a Walmart assistant store manager in Coral Gables, Florida.
He’s not alone.
Walmart has more than 30,000 outdoor locations in the U.S. and Canada, with more than 15 million people living in them.
If you’re not a member, the outdoor space in a Walmart store usually has two or three other areas to get in.
The patio, like many other spaces, is divided into two zones.
The first zone is called the living area, which is where you can get all the furniture you want and use it as a place for people to hangout, relax, or hang out.
In the second zone, the store’s security and other staff use the space to keep an eye on customers and staff.
“You can’t go into the store with no furniture and no privacy,” says Steve Jones, a retail associate in Coral Springs, Florida, who has been working at the store since 2008.
There are plenty of things you can do in the living room, including cook up some food for your family or have a snack.
It’s a good time to go shopping.
A Walmart outlet typically has a selection of products for sale.
And because of the patio, you can shop anywhere you like.
“I’ll see if I can find a shirt, a dress, and a pair of shoes, and I’m like, ‘Oh my God, these are great,'” Jones says.
A lot of people will be hanging out on the patio for hours on end, so it’s important to have a place where you’ll be comfortable.
In the past, it was pretty easy to just leave the living space to go to the patio.
Walmart said it had “staffed up” for this year, but you might have to do it yourself if you don’t have the time.
Walmart also recommends hiring a security guard.
If you’re going to go out, wear comfortable shoes, a shirt and tie, a hat, and flip flops, which are covered in mesh.
Walmart employees also have a privacy wall.
It’s just a small metal door that can be set up in any direction.
It will be on your side, or you can put it on a table or a wall.
If you are outside, be sure to lock your door and use a key.
But if you want to be outside with family or friends, it’s best to have them leave their doors unlocked.
“We’re not going to let anybody go into our store and leave the doors unlocked, because that’s not cool,” Jones says, adding that he’s never seen anyone leave their door unlocked.
When you walk into a Walmart, be aware that security guards will likely be watching you.
“They are probably watching you as you walk through the store, looking for things to take note of,” says Jones.
Also, be careful about walking around the store alone, especially if you’re younger and/or older than 18.
Walmart doesn’t have a designated driver to pick up and drop off customers.
“You’re going in alone, and theres no way for them to know who you are,” Jones adds.
And if you need to do anything, be prepared to get up and leave.
Walmart says you can’t leave the patio unless it’s your own business.
“There are no rules, so just be prepared for it,” says Gaggiardi.
You can also get a Walmart gift card at the counter, but it won’t be accepted if you haven’t paid the bill yet.
Be careful with the items that are on the shelves.
It can get crowded, so be careful when you get into your car and start driving.
You can also ask staff for a coupon for a gift card.
