Walmart set to enter home install market in time for holiday shopping

For a long time, there were three big names in consumer electronics in most markets in the U.S. including Walmart, Best Buy, and Circuit City. With the demise of Circuit City that left only Best Buy and Walmart in most areas. Best Buy has offered install services through its Geek Squad for a long time and Walmart is reportedly set to offer its own install services very soon.

An official launch date for Walmart's install service has not been announced, but HotHardware reports that the install services will be in place in time for the holiday shopping season. With Black Friday only about a month away, that should mean very soon.

The Walmart service will be a partnership with N.E.W. Customer Service Companies and will offer install services for items that Walmart sells. The service will reportedly be purchased as a prepaid card with price ranging from $99 to $399. Buyers can get all sorts of services form WiFi setup to full home theater installs. The service will also include a tutorial for the buyer on how to work their device after the install.
