Tips for finding nearby Walmart stores include using the store locator tool as well as the My Local Store feature on Walmart.com. Other options include checking local business directories, such as Yellowpages.com, for addresses, as of 2015. The Walmart smartphone apps and mobile websites also contain features to use a phone's GPS to automatically locate the nearest location.
Walmart.com contains a store locator tool that allows users to enter a city and state, or a ZIP code, to see a listing of all currently active stores within that location, displaying results both in a list and on an interactive map. If the customer is not able to find a store using a city or ZIP code, she may move the viewable area of the map to a specific location to find stores in that region. The My Local Store section of the site automatically detects the user's location according to her Internet connection and returns the closest store.
Another option is to check a business directory such as Yellowpages.com, which allows users to conduct a similar search within a geographic location to see all matching business. Users may also be able to call a store in one area to find the address and phone number of other stores in the area.
The Walmart app and mobile websites have the ability to utilize the GPS functionality of capable smartphones to check the user's location and find all stores in the area as well.
