What does it mean to dream about Walmart?

Having a dream about Walmart sounds like a weird occurrence, right? Well, anything we do in real life (shopping, texting, eating) can appear in our dreams, so it’s not as strange as it sounds. My dreamer today is Pamela from Lawrenceville, Georgia USA who has had a really interesting dream where she dreams she is at Walmart.

Pamela describes her dream: “I’m at a Walmart parking lot, then I’m then inside the store. It’s not exactly like Walmart, but more like a small private hospital. An old man keeps trying to keep me from leaving – I’m fighting to get away – but no one really believes me. As we are fighting, I’m trying to lock the door of the car but he still manages to get in.”

Dream Symbols:

  • Walmart
  • Old man
  • Fighting
  • Locked car door

Right-o, let’s get into this one then, shall we? Where I live in Australia, we do not have Walmart. I know what it is from the movies, and from TV. Walmart actually operates in 28 countries, and they sell a range of goods at their chain of hypermarkets, discount department stores and grocery stores.

Walmart is known as a shopping centre for people who are looking for a good deal. If Rodeo Drive is for the A-lister, then Walmart is for the D-lister. That’s not to say I wouldn’t shop there personally, just that this may provide a clue as to what dreaming about Walmart really means.

Dreaming of a bargain or dreaming about “bargain hunting”

Dream symbols of Walmart are reasonably common

Dream Moods says, “To dream that you are bargaining for something indicates that you are being undervalued. Perhaps you are not putting in as much effort into a project or relationship as you should be.” Could dreaming of a discount store be an indication of your level of self-worth?

Dreaming about shopping in a mall

Dream Moods also says that when we dream of shopping at the mall, this symbolises “the choices, decisions and options you have in your waking life.” The website goes on to suggest that these choices might even shape who you are as a person and may be relevant to your personal identity and sense of self.

Shopping is an ancient human necessity and meeting at the local marketplace or town square has connotations of social interactions, social standing and preparing for the future of your home and family. Dreaming of Walmart may have some of these as threads, Pamela.

“To dream that you are shopping symbolises your needs and desires. It also represents opportunities and options that you come across in life,” according to Dream Moods. Ask yourself, “What does Walmart mean to me?”

When you dream about Walmart should you save money and live better?

What does a dream about Walmart mean? Let’s examine this dream’s meaning

What are your thoughts and emotions when you dream about Walmart? I found an interesting quote online from Find Your Lucky.com that says that Walmart may in fact symbolise dreams of a better life, and the need to balance your ingoings and outgoings. It may symbolise unwanted debts or the desire to “keep up with the Joneses”. Are you looking for something that is lacking in your life? Do you feel unsatisfied or unfulfilled with the current direction of your life?

Pamela’s Dream about the old man

Could the old man symbolise maturity and wisdom to you? The fact that he is trying to fight you indicates that you may be experiencing inner turmoil. Are you fighting some aspect of yourself? Cars also symbolise “the direction you are going in life” so perhaps there is a question around whether you are battling the older, wiser aspect of yourself and trying to lock him out.

Alternatively, you may be dreaming about a real and domineering male who has been aggressive towards you in real life. What characteristics did this man have and why were you fighting him so much? A dream about Walmart is a very interesting thing!

Thank you for sharing your dream with us, Pamela!

    I’m not sure if there is a specific way to submit a dream to you, so I will do it with a reply.

    I had a dream that I was in Walmart, and the skies were a dark grey/green combo with heavy rain and wind, and in the dream, I was just browsing the whole store and running around like a little kid, but I never got lost because I knew where I was going. When it came time to leave, it turned out we were under a Tornado warning. I saw cars get picked up and tossed around like ragdolls, but I never saw an actual tornado. Moments later the roof of Walmart got ripped off, but oddly enough, we were safe. Then the dream faded to my house under the same scenario. In my dream it too was under a tornado warning and this time I saw it ravage my back yard, but it never did serious damage to the house. I keep having dreams about tornadoes for whatever reason, yet I never know why.

    I had a dream where I was the manager at a walmart and I was doing normal manager things. Then suddenly I spot ALL of my current and previous friends. I was in shock and caught up with all of them and asked about life then one of my staff quit because “you give them more attention than you give us”. I didn’t really care since I didn’t know them well. Then I was arranging the Paychecks. I knew the dream would be over soon so I gave each employee a 2,500 check and said “Good Luck” and Gave the happiest employee the manager position and I quit and the dream ended.

      Hi Xylas,

      Wow – great dream! The figure of $2500 might be an interesting thing to meditate upon. Check out some numerology sites to see whether you can uncover any information about it.
      Love, Alyce
