It can be frustrating to discover a product you want is out of stock at your local Walmart. However, Wally World regularly restocks its inventory and the restock time varies depending on the type of product they store.

When does Walmart restock?

Walmart restocks groceries on a daily basis, while other products such as electronics and fashion are restocked 3-4 times a week. All products are usually restocked during the second or third shift of the day when the aisles are less busy. The restock schedule also varies depending on the store’s location.

When does Walmart restock groceries?

Walmart restocks groceries on a daily basis. The restock usually takes place overnight between 10pm to 7am. However, if a store is busier than usual, and has a lot of shoppers on a given day, groceries may be restocked during the daytime as well. Therefore, the best time to shop for fresh vegetables and perishable goods at Walmart is in the morning.

When does Walmart restock electronics?

Walmart restocks electronics such as TVs, mobile phones, and computers 3-4 times a week. This restock usually takes place during the second or third shift of the day and hence usually between 12am to 7am in the store. Therefore, the best time to shop for electronics and browse through the new stock at Walmart is in the morning.

When does Walmart’s online store restock?

Unlike Walmart’s physical stores, the online store does not follow a specific restocking schedule. Products that are high in demand are given a higher priority, and other products are restocked as and when needed.

How to check if a product is in stock

Customers can see if a product is out of stock online or on the Walmart mobile app without having to travel to their local store. Simply choose the ‘Search my store’ feature, and search for the product you are looking for. The app will show you if your chosen product is available in your local store or not.

Final Thoughts: When does Walmart restock?

Walmart’s restock schedule depends on the type of product they stock. While perishable goods such as groceries are stocked on a daily basis, and even sometimes multiple times a day, other consumer goods such as electronics are stocked 3-4 times a week in-store. The best time to shop in-store is in the mornings on weekdays.

Walmart’s online store gives top priority to products that are higher-in-demand and does not follow any strict restocking schedule. Customers can easily set alert notifications online to be notified when certain products are restocked as well. The Walmart app can also be used to see which products are out of stock at your local store. Whether online or in-store, Walmart does restock all products often, and therefore you are likely to find what you’re looking for sooner than later.
