Over 2.4 million customers shop in-store at Walmart locations and online at Walmart.ca every day. It’s no wonder the retail giant is so popular. Walmart gives customers many choices to shop in-store and in the ever-growing online marketplace. Plus, customers can select from home delivery and several pickup options, making stocking-up on groceries a convenient and overall consumer-friendly experience.

Walmart has over 400 retail locations in Canada, offering customers over 120,000 products to choose from in-store and over one million items online. This means loyal Walmart shoppers can redeem their Walmart Reward Dollars for a wide selection of goods using the Walmart Rewards Mastercard®.
