Walmart | July 25, 2022
BROOKLYN, N.Y., and BENTONVILLE, Ark., July 28, 2022 — Walmart (NYSE: WMT) and Getaway, a health and wellness hospitality company on a mission to make space in the world for free time, announced a new partnership that helps guests live better by aiming to make traveling to nature even easier and convenient. The new alliance, which designates Walmart as Getaway’s first official retail partner, will introduce innovative offerings for guests starting this fall such as The General Store by Walmart, opening at select Getaway Outposts.
The General Store by Walmart, a mini-retail experience at select Getaway Outposts, will include seasonal products, sourced from Walmart and curated by the outdoor experts at Getaway. Items may include hiking gear, leisure activities and equipment including FujiFilm cameras, Lodge Cast Iron Skillets, Pendleton Outdoor Blankets and Burt’s Bees lip balms to name a few. The everyday items will be available at the Outpost, saving guests from having to travel off the property if they forgot an item at home. At the time of check-in for the next six months, guests will also receive Welcome Kits, which will include ingredients to make the ultimate camping treat: s’mores.
The General Store will also feature quality goods from small businesses within the community, furthering Getaway and Walmart’s commitment to supporting local communities. The first General Store will open this August at Getaway Hill Country in Wimberly, Texas, located near Austin and San Antonio. Additional retail General Stores will open through the end of the year at Machimoodus in Moodus, Connecticut; Getaway Big Bear in Running Springs, California; Getaway Western Catskills in Roscoe, New York; and Getaway Ozark Highlands in Osceola, Missouri.
Items on sale at The General Store by Walmart will also be available on Walmart.com via a Getaway shopping page for guests to shop in advance of their visit. Getaway guests who visit any Outpost over the next year will also receive a complimentary Walmart+ trial.
