Walmart Is Still Looking for Entrepreneurs Making These Four Types of Products

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.
