    Interesting concept for Walmart. It's cheaper on Amazon.
    It may be a good "My First Medical Kit" for those that don't want to assemble for themselves. I haven't delved into the details, some med items have an expiration date.

    Its sold through a 3rd party. Much like Amazon does, Walmart allows 3rd party sellers to sell on their site. Walmart does nothing but process the transaction for these.

    Walmart.com return policy can be interesting and totally dependent on the vendor, much like amazon 3rd party. Mom bought some stuff on Walmart.com and needed to return the items, Walmart was less than helpful in dealing with the defective items or intervening in the dispute with the vendor.

    Agree. I’ve had some pretty rank arguements with Walmart when a 3rd party seller failed to deliver. They tried to wash their hands if it until I pointed out that I paid them and not some 3rd party. Then they finally stepped up to help. I won’t buy 3rd party on Walmart because of that.

    The irony, not selling guns or ammo to anyone under 21, no AR or Assault style rifles, but lets start selling military surplus. I know its 3rd party but still.
