Walmart plans to close 63 Sam's Club stores

Walmart workers win pay rise after Trump tax cuts

Sam's Club tweeted that after a thorough review of its existing portfolio, the company has chose to close a number of stores to "better align out locations with our strategy". "We will be closing some clubs, and we notified them today".

The first of these converted eCommerce fulfillment centers will be located in Memphis, TE.

Other states set to see closures included Arizona, Illinois and Tennessee, according to local news reports.

The new tax law lowers the USA corporate tax rate to 21 percent from 35 percent, among other things, and McMillon said Wal-Mart was "in the early stages of assessing the opportunities tax reform creates for us to invest in our customers and associates and to further strengthen our business, all of which should benefit our shareholders". But a company spokesman told AFP the starting wage for all workers now will be at least $11.

Walmart is the largest non-governmental US employer.

Sam's Club in Goshen will soon shutter its doors.

Sixty-three Sam's Club stores are slated to close across the county, according to a statement from the company released Thursday. As of December, the average pay for full-time workers was $13 an hour.

The Lithonia store is one of 63 closing around the country.

In Texas, four stores employing 633 workers will shut, with three closing Thursday and another in San Antonio being shuttered January 26.

A security guard is standing in front of the store informing people that it's closed.

"Hourly associates will continue receiving compensation for 60 days while they look for other opportunities in nearby clubs or Walmart stores", she said.

The retail landscape has been upended by the rise of Amazon and the growing shift by consumers to shopping online.

Sam's Club officials also announced plans to close two Indianapolis locations - 10859 E. Washington St. and 3015 W. 86th St. In that announcement, however, the company made no mention of the Sam's Club closures and has not indicated how many jobs will be lost. There are also plans to improve the club's fresh food offerings, overall product selection and its private label, Member's Mark. Last month, Costco reported that its online sales had leaped 43.5% in the most recent quarter.

The Twitter account for Sam's Club confirmed a "series of clubs" would be closing but did not report where the stores would close. "I'm not going to drive out there in the winter", said Ruth Ives, a regular Sam's Club customer.
