Walmart is suddenly closing several Sam’s Club stores across the U.S. without explanation.

(BI) – Closures were reported by local media in Texas, New York, New Jersey, Indiana, Arizona Alaska, and elsewhere.
In some cases, employees were not informed of the closures prior to showing up to work on Thursday.
Instead, they learned that their store would be closing when they found the store’s doors locked and a notice announcing the closure, according to reports.
Walmart and Sam’s Club did not immediately respond to a request for comment.
Jessica Buckner, an employee of a Sam’s Club store in Alaska, told KTVA that all Sam’s Club stores in the state are closing as part of a larger downsizing across the U.S.
“From what I heard, there’s over 260 stores that have been closed down,” Buckner told the station.
