WALK-IN (ADJ): meaning and examples

Good morning.

Today's word is: walk-in (adj)

Meaning: not arranged in advance; without an appointment. Where you do not need to arrange a time in advance.

Example 1:
When I was on holiday last summer my wife became ill and we took her to a walk-in clinic. We didn't have to make an appointment, but we had to wait a long time before the doctor saw her.

The adjective walk-in can also refer to a place that is large enough to walk into (for example, a very large closet).

Example 2
The new home we bought includes two large bedrooms, both with big walk-in closets with plenty of room for our clothes.
