Walmart has received an unprecedented number of applications for its 6th annual Open Call for US-manufactured products – and they’re looking for even more. In fact, entrepreneurs and small businesses that manufacture home goods, apparel and toys are strongly encouraged to apply because there is still room for meetings in these four product groups. Space is limited and the application portal closes on April 30.
Thousands of supplier-hopefuls from across the nation have already applied for the opportunity to secure a face-to-face pitch meeting with a Walmart buyer during the event being held June 18 and 19 at the company’s Home Office campus in Bentonville, Arkansas.
