Walmart first implemented sensory-friendly hours as a trial run for kids and parents shopping for back-to-school. Now they're making it permanent with daily hours and no forseeable plans to discontinue it.

This will be especially useful to stimulation sensitive groups ahead of the upcoming Black Friday and holiday shopping mayhem!

  • No more cash back for coupons
  • Digital coupons will not be accepted
  • You may only use a limited number of paper coupons
  • Expired coupons will no longer be accepted
  • Managers cannot override expired coupons
