Some Sam's Club stores abruptly close nationwide

Some Sam's Club stores abruptly close nationwide

The store would close, for good, January 26, a sign on the store stated.

"We don't take this lightly and decisions like these are incredibly hard", Walmart spokesperson Amy Wyatt-Moore said about the closing of the Lithonia store.

Town Manager Bill Manzi said he received a call from the Seabrook store manager on Thursday confirming the closure of the store at 11 Batchelder Road.

Walmart's new benefits to employees also include a one-time bonus for eligible hourly associates, including part-time workers.

The Mayor of Stonecrest said they are outraged. Roughly 10 of those locations closed their doors as soon as Thursday, while the remainder will be shuttered over the next three to four weeks, the Walmart official said.

The Lithonia and Memphis stores are not the only ones. Some locations will close in the coming weeks.

The membership warehouse said that it plans to convert another 13 into online distribution centers.

In a Twitter post, Sam's Club confirmed it was closing an unspecified number of locations, according to reports.

Sam's Club, a subsidiary of Walmart, tweeted early this morning that after a thorough review of its existing portfolio, it chose to closed "a series" of clubs to better align its locations with its strategy.

A Walmart official says the company is closing 63 Sam's Club stores across the country.

"Sam Walton, his dream, his vision is to make Walmart a better place, to make families happy, and to make the employees happy and to make everyone satisfied".

"So, we're pleased to tell you that we're raising our starting wage to $11 an hour for Walmart U.S., Sam's Club, Supply Chain, eCommerce and Home Office hourly associates effective in February".

So, although Walmart estimates that the wage increase and bonus will cost the country around $700 million, the move could prove to be well worth it in the long-run.

Walmart said it will record a discrete charge of approximately 14c per share related to the actions. Those with 20 years of service will get the full $1,000. The benefit, which will be available to full-time hourly and salaried workers, will total $5,000 per child.

The company also plans to pay $2,000 bonuses this spring to about 60,000 hourly and salaried USA employees.
