The most successful retailer in the United States is expanding its customer base to include animals. Starting Tuesday, Walmart will offer free pet telehealth appointments as part of its Walmart Plus subscription plan.

The new service, which is being offered in partnership with veterinary company Pawp, is the retail giant’s latest effort to compete with the Amazon Prime subscription service. Walmart Plus subscribers have until November 19th to sign up for the virtual veterinary service, which is being offered at no additional charge for the first year, company officials say. CNBC says after that, it will cost $99 a year. What are some downsides to receiving medical care through a telehealth service?

North Carolina Town Voted One Of Best Small Towns For Shopping

USA Today recently had their readers vote for their “10 best” campaign. One of those categories was “The Best Small Towns for Shopping”. And one North Carolina town made the top 10 best small towns for the shopping list! I’ve never been to this mountain town, so a visit may be in order. Summer is the perfect time to travel and enjoy the mainly open air shopping districts on this list. I’m surprised that I have only been to one of these towns (and it’s actually the farthest one away…go figure!) But I have bookmarked multiple of these that I can’t wait to visit. Shopping and historic towns are some of my favorite things.

It’s not too late to plan your summer getaway and each of these small towns offers a shopping lover’s paradise! Especially if you are in to unique and or handmade items. Some of these are mountain towns there could be a good winter destination as well. As long as you don’t mind the cold that is.  We’ve got multiple areas of the country covered, so whether you want to fly or drive one of these is doable!
