As of January 2015, bananas are the top-selling item at Walmart. This fruit has held the top spot in Walmart's sales for the past several years.
Out of a total of $405 billion in annual sales, Walmart representatives point to the banana, which is considered to be the cheapest food at the grocery store, as the top seller. On Black Friday, however, the consumer focus shifts. For example, in 2013, towels were the top-selling Black Friday item at Walmart, with 2.8 million towels and washcloth sets being sold. Other big-selling Black Friday items that year were televisions, tablets, dolls and bicycles.
