BENTONVILLE, Ark. – Walmart is unveiling a program designed to help consumers find refurbished products that they can buy with confidence.
Called Walmart Restore, the program provides a tool for shoppers looking for previously owned products from well-known consumer brands such as Apple, Samsung and KitchenAid, according to a news item on Walmart’s corporate website.
“In a year when customers are looking for ways to save money, like-new refurbished products have become an increasingly popular way to cut down on costs without sacrificing quality,” the company said. “At Walmart, we already work with sellers and suppliers on Walmart.com who are committed to refurbishing top-quality products and preparing them for a new home at a fraction of typical costs. And now, those items will be even easier to find and shop with the Walmart Restored program designation.”
The Walmart Restored program aims to give shoppers the confidence that they are buying from top-rated performance managed sellers and suppliers, according to Walmart. All products listed on the site have been professionally inspected, tested and cleaned, Walmart said, and if for any reason a customer isn’t satisfied, we offer 90-day free returns to help enable shopping with confidence.
“The Walmart Restored program is helping build trust with our customers by offering fantastic value for shoppers,” the company said. “Online now and in select stores later this fall, the program also gives customers a choice and an opportunity to extend the life of a product.”
The omnichannel retailer is rolling out the program with sellers’ promotional pricing on select items.
