WALMART stores are deliberately designed with your shopping experience in mind.
The brand recently redesigned around 1,000 stores around this philosophy to ensure stores are easy to navigate and deals easy to find.
However, according to a Walmart employee on social media, the store sets up at least one aisle in a way that may end up costing you.
Rachel Timsina, a former Walmart employee who goes by the name rachelt369 on TikTok, revealed a secret about the toy department earlier this year.
According to Rachel, certain toys are intentionally turned on while displayed on shelves.
The goal is to use the lights or sounds produced by some of the active toys to attract children to the area.
With a bit of luck, kids will find the source of the noise and convince their parents to put a toy or two in their shopping cart.
When she recorded herself walking down the aisle, several toys could be heard making noises without anyone pressing any buttons.
Other Walmart employees in the comments section said they noticed toys running without being served.
“I work in the toy department and I literally thought they were possessed by a ghost or something,” said one.
Other commentators were less impressed with the revelation.
“It’s not really a secret. It’s a marketing technique,” wrote another TikToker.
The Sun contacted Walmart for comment.
Saving tips on toys and more at Walmart
Walmart regularly runs clearance sales on tons of items, including popular toys.
In addition, the store offers coupons on its website that shoppers can print for in-store discounts.
Walmart also often places special offers and discounted items together in front of and behind the aisles.
Next time you’re shopping at Walmart, be sure to stop by the end cap on either side of an aisle.
You may find offers on selected products or other clearance items at competitive prices.
And there are plenty of cashback apps that offer rewards if you upload photos of your Walmart receipts, whether you’re picking up toys or groceries.
Ibotta is one of the most popular, and the company says its users save an average of $150 a year.
The app accepts receipts from more than 2,000 retailers and applies to in-store and online purchases.
Another cashback app, Fetch, also gives you rewards for taking photos of your bills.
You’ll earn points for every receipt you upload based on how much you’ve spent, and you can redeem those points for gift cards.
