Do you have a product made, sourced or grown in the U.S. that belongs on store shelves across the country? Well, Walmart is serving up a chance at the big break you’ve been looking for. Now through April 30, we are accepting applications for our 6th annual Open Call for products that support American jobs and we couldn’t be more thrilled about this year’s event!

While finding products that fulfill the needs of our customers is a year-round focus, Open Call is especially exciting. It’s a two-day event for our buyers to meet face-to-face with entrepreneurs with one goal in mind: buy more American products.

Through hundreds of meetings with our buyers, we make it easy for supplier hopefuls to showcase their products and potentially get them in the hands of millions of Walmart customers. During Open Call, companies large or small and from all corners of the country have a shot at the American Dream.
