Florida Guide > Shopping
Walmart Florida style
Wal-Mart is one of the most successful retailers in America and in fact the world, they have 6500 stores spread across 14 countries, and you never have far to travel before you come across one in Orlando.
With most opening 24hrs a day it is ideal to shop either early in the morning which we prefer to do or late at night therefore not missing any of the precious day time hours or the glorious sunshine.
They are vast stores and absolutely anything you are looking for you are surely to find it here. They sell almost everything and I mean almost everything from tyres to electrical goods to home ware to scrumptious foods, toys, clothes, garden, the list goes on….
I t is usually our first stop soon after we arrive in Florida to stock up our cupboards, the food section is huge and the choices are vast. The bakery section is especially tempting and usually the first stop (just don’t think calories). Fresh meat counters along with fresh fish counters offer great choice and you can stock up for your stay, maybe something for the barbecue and of course a few beers to top the fridge up. Not that you will all want to take advantage of the huge kitchens whilst on vacation but we do like cooking and so enjoy a few evenings home.
The wine section is also vast with lots of choice and there are lots that you can not even buy here in the UK.There is a lovely Spanish cava (champagne) which is made just south of Barcelona and is in a lovely bottle with a pewter base called Segura viduras, I usually have to travel to Spain to get this as it is one of my favourites but guess what!!!! YES they stock it here; needless to say I always bring some home with me.
Homeware is also well stocked here and great for things like towels etc…in fact every area is huge and well stocked whether it is the toy department or the electrical department through to the garden department.
You could in fact spend a good few hours browsing through the store and it is a good idea to arrange a meet time and place as if there are a few of you as you will surely split up and lose sight of each other.
If you haven’t visited one yet then why not give it a try on your next visit, you might just get hooked.
