Sam's Club stores in CT closed; 155 employees impacted in Orange

Manchester, Orange Sam's Clubs To Close Sam's Club stores abruptly close
Preston Stone | 12 January, 2018, 06:34

The store wasn't underperforming, Hatfield said, but the company made a decision to close the location as part of a review regarding the "right mix of clubs" and emphasis on e-commerce under CEO John Furner.

Two Cincinnati area Sam's Club stores have closed suddenly without notice.

According to reports, in some cases, employees were not informed of the closures before showing up to work on Thursday.

Sam's Club CEO John Furner notified employees of the move Thursday.

Earlier on Thursday, Walmart announced that it was boosting its starting hourly wage to $11 an hour and giving bonuses of up to $1,000 to employees based on seniority.

Walmart will close several Sam's Club stores across the United States including the West Allis and Madison locations. We'll convert some of them into eCommerce fulfillment centers - to better serve the growing number of members shopping with us online and continue scaling the SamsClub.com business. In some locations, per social media, people showed up to work only to be told that their location was closing, with almost no advance notice.

The Sam's Club location at 12919 San Pedro Ave.in San Antonio (not pictured) will permanently close January 26, Walmart spokeswoman Anne Hatfield said.

Our sister station in Wisconsin is reporting a location there will also be open tomorrow ahead of being permanently shut down. The only other Florida store on that list was in the town of Fern Park, near Altamonte Springs. Locations in Norfolk and Richmond are expected to close by March 16, according to state labor officials, with more than 300 employees affected.

This is a developing story and will be updated.
