Default Walmart and Thermacell

I have been to 3 Walmart stores and could not find Thermacell units or supplies. Does anyone know if they've stopped carrying the product or just not have it where I went?

graham Wal-Mart had all their Thermacell units & refills on clearance back in August - when I say clearance I mean CLEARANCE - $17.99 for the unit and $3.49 for the box of refills. I bought several for my elk hunt since they were so cheap. Wonder if they are not going to carry them anymore or if they are a seasonal item?

Go to Academy and look in the hunting and camping sections. Wal-mart has stopped carrying most things of use for us hunters. UNLESS, you are in Decatur. That Decatur Wal-Mart has a bunch of stuff!!!!!

I don't have an Academy in the town where I live, or where I work, or where I hunt - was just wondering if I was having a string of bad luck or if they had stopped carrying it. Have looked in hunting and camping section of all three stores. Have not been able to find the butane containers in the health and beauty section either.

I haven't seen them at our Wal-Mart either, but I saw them on sale yesterday at a Home Depot for $14 in the pest control section....the refills were cheap also.

Might look at a local Home Depot.

Bought one a week ago in Granbury. Found it in the camping section by all the other mosquito repellants on the bottom shelf.

I usually just buy the pads at Academy and refill my butane cartridges myself.

Being a "seasonal" item, they're probably sold out and won't get any more until this spring.

Just like a/c units, once they're gone, they're gone...

Very carefully.

I'll do a DIY writeup this weekend. Been meaning to do it. Pretty simple actually.

From Weatherford, go to the Academy at I-20 and Bryant Irvin in Ft. Worth. It is probably the closest. For the same price as a ThermaCell, you can get a ThermaScent. It is the same thing but has and adapter that clips onto the front and you can put scent on it and it will disperse the scent into the air. I really like mine.

Trailboss, they quit carrying the butane refills for the curling iron a while back. They were a lot cheaper than the Thermicell refills.

Trail Boss, I would be happy to pick one up for you and deliver to Newcastle but I won't be back out to the lease until December 2nd. If you have no luck and can wait, let me know.
