We buy are preps wherever and from whoever has the best stuff for the right price, if Wally World can get it together and supply more of our preps great, if not does not really matter. We are going to by what we need and use and Wally World has been a part of some of it. They are not my end all and or be all.

That's looks a lot more telling than it actually is. You must also look at the merchandise that is being sold. You can buy an Mac or I-Phone for lots of money from a Kiosk, Coach and Tiffany overpriced and don't need much area to take some Diva's money, Jewelry stores big profit small are. The same thing with best buy it is dedicated to expensive product sales($1000 TV's, etc). I like Sam's and I like Costco I do find that each has certain items that are better than the other. One thing that can affect Sam's Sq Footage sales is that Sam's Clubs do appear in some lower traffic areas that Costco would go into.

Sorry if this is dead but at walmart they have 550 cord in the sewing section and the orange coleman 65liter bag is a very reliable pack. Tons of storage built on daisy chain on front the shoulder straps are adjustable I have owned the bag for 5 yrs now and I will be getting a another for my wife for the price is a nice one

Like anywhere else.. some good..some not. The Wally Mart right down the street from me has a pretty decent "camping" section.. quite a lot of goodies. They also carry a nice selection of MH pouches at a price lower than anywhere else local. Obviously, they also have a large pharm/hygiene section..and a lot of times they even have ammo. Haven't really seen a "nice" knife there yet..and you could probably do "better" on a more durable tent elsewhere.

Thank goodness for Canadian Tire up here. We got a whole section of the store devoted to the great out doors. But no amount of stuff is a substitute for good field craft. The best way to prep as I see it is to go out and live for a weekend out of a back pack.

In my area, WalMart has had by far the best prices on plastic 5-gallon gas cans for at least a year or so.

I've started ordering from WM online. Shipping is free with an order of ~$50, and anything that keeps me from having to go in there is a Good Thing. I've noticed that many items are available online that aren't in the store, especially camping food and the like.

Many of the items in my bug out bag were purchased at Walmart, including: waterproof matches, compasses, mylar blankets, emergency ponchos, wire saws, folding shovel, water containers, fishing supplies, tape, pellet ammo, knives, fuel, hygienic products, medicine, fire steels, magnesium fire bars, first aid supplies...the list goes on and on. I know I'm forgetting a lot of stuff, but it's just to show you that Walmart IS very useful for prepping.

I bought 608-785-59470 cord from my local Wal-Mart. They sell it in 50 foot rolls. It was in near the trailer section/hardware aisle in my store. I would have figured the camping section too.

Walmart sells a bunch of "prepping" stuff online. We use it alot. Best thing is that we can have is shipped to our store for free, so we don't have to pay shipping costs.

Still the biggest and highest grossing company in the world!

Wally World carries Mountain House dehydrated food for $62 and change. If you have it shipped to the store and pick it up thre's no S&H cost. That's about as cheap as I have found it anywhere except for an occasional sale at http://slickguns.com

Walmart online offers free shipping on orders over $50. That has been in effect for quite some time now. And if you don't like what you purchased you can take it back to the store. Pretty convenient.

I'm not as prepared as a lot of the posters here but the biggest part of my 'stash' has come from wally-world. From time to time they have some good deals. The other thing in their favor is that they are close by and convenient for me.

Here in Idaho and next door in Utah many, of not most, of the WalMarts stock dehydrated and freeze dried food for storage, along with such items as can rotation shelves, water barrels, etc. So do some of the other grocery stores. A lot of them (not Walmart) will also have case lot sales a couple of times a year. That is probably largely due to the substantial Mormon population, but also the attitude of self-reliance that is common among all sectors of the society in this part of the country.

You can buy Augason Farms dehydrated food from Walmart.com. Free shipping to store or your house if you order more than $50. It's very convenient.
