For any non-American readers who like me, don’t know how Walmart works, I’ll save you frantically looking in your Spanish dictionary as the tech staff tell you where to go. (You can imagine me walking back and forth whilst staring confusedly at my dictionary). You tell the technology staff which camera you would like, they check that they have it in stock and write the number down for you. You then pay at the normal cashiers and take the receipt back to the technology department.
