Can I shop in person for a Christmas Kid this year?
Unfortunately, we have had to suspend the big in-person events this year. This is disappointing, as we know shopping for a child in person is a huge part of the experience for so many of us. We have tried to make the process as “high touch” as we can, with each child’s wish list online and enabling you to “shop” for his/her gifts.
For those in the Atlanta, Georgia area, there will be a limited number of lists available at the following 10 Walmart locations on December 3rd and 4th from 9:00 am – 8:00 pm. You can go to the Customer Service Desk to retrieve a list. After you check out, bring the gifts, list, and receipt to Customer Service. Please note Clark will not be at any of the Walmart locations.
