In years past, Walmart offered several complimentary services at their jewelry counter, including watch link removal.
Unfortunately, Walmart no longer removes watch links at their jewelry counter. The service has been discontinued due to lack of demand.
What Other Stores Remove Watch Links Aside From Walmart?
Even though Walmart no longer offers this service, there are still plenty of places that will help you resize your watch.
The following retailers have been known to offer watch resizing services:
If you own a designer watch from a company like Rolex, for example, you can also contact the maker directly or visit a company-owned retail store to request a resizing. If you purchased your watch directly from the manufacturer, you will not be charged for watch link removal.
