Walmart Day Brings in Big Numbers
Saturday, February 19 brought in over 3800 people to the Orlando Science Center. The popular “Walmart $5 day” has been brought back several times since the first event in May 2009, and the amount of people who take advantage of this special opportunity never ceases to amaze. For many this event is the opportunity to experience the Science Center for the first time. Steven Daniel, Walmart Market Manager for Central Florida, has said “These are the types of community programs we are proud to sponsor for our Central Florida neighbors.”
The success of the day was evident to anyone who lined up to see a show in the Dr. Phillip’s Cinedome Saturday. All five shows were filled to capcity with thrifty families. With the amount of savings for a family of four at nearly $40, a significant savings was felt. Those who spent Saturday at the Science Center were in luck, as the day also marked the fourth annual Mission Nutrition event. All four floors were lined up with booths, information and healthcare specialists to educate on all things health and wellness. Guests had a great time learning how to take care of their bodies, all while meeting and greeting with different Walmart employees generously who came out to volunteer for the day.
With all the fun and savings its no wonder the Walmart sponsored $5 day is a sensation. With a partner so supportive of science learning for life, we are happy to have them as a partner for such a successful event.
