Ive been ordering oil from walmart.com for a while, but browse the aisles when Im there. For the last several months, the Supertech conventional selection has been unusually sparse, while the synthetics are usually stocked well. Also, the name brand dinos are stocked well too. Tonight there was 4 gallons 20w50, 1 gallon of 10w40 and 1 gallon of 5w30 HM. I know that there are so many variables involved in the supply processes of a huge retailer, but maybe the world has gotten the message that your engine will last just as long on SN ST dino that it will on any other oil? hide hide

Warehouse space in the back of the store is sparse. Its Christmas season and my guess is its being used for higher profit items presently as well as Christmas pickup for customers.

Walmart stocking is always hit and miss.
Some stores seem to do really well while others look like the one you posted.
So much for Walmart's wonderful ability to keep its shelves properly stocked.
What was considered state of the art inventory control twenty years ago doesn't cut it today.
No wonder so many people shop Amazon.

My Walmart’s full of ST Dino but the prices are creeping up (over $13 now) so I can’t imagine it’s long for this world in the SN grades.

Who cares. My local Rural King is always stocked well. I'm doing what Subyrubieroo is and not giving wal mart a single red cent of my hard earned money. Dont like wal mart: simple, dont shop there and whine about it.

Sometimes small shop owners come in and buy up the supertech by the cart load.

Before we sold our shop we purchased our Mobil 1 there. It was much cheaper than I could buy it in bulk!

We could get champ jobber filters for .75 though lol

You must have missed "at my local walmarts" in the title. Thats a total of 4 out of thousands of stores. If I was referring to them all, I would have simply titled it "trend at walmarts".
