Every store — and every manager and employee — will vary on whether or not they will accept returns without a receipt. So, just try to speak clearly about how you’ve lost the receipt, yet still would like to return the paint.
Because you have no receipt, Walmart will likely not give you cash back, or put the refund on your credit or debit card. Instead, they will give you store credit on a Walmart gift card.

Yes! As long as half the can isn’t gone, Walmart will accept opened paint.
