Sam's Clubs closing nationwide: List of closing locations

Employees at the west side Sam's Club location on Rockville Road were in the same meetings as the two closing locations, but didn't know for sure if the store would permanently remain open.

The company announced the pay increases and bonuses on the same day that it revealed it was closing 63 Sam's Club stores.

Several stores were abruptly closed Thursday.

The location was closed Thursday, A recording told callers the store would reopen at 10 a.m. on Friday.

The company's layoff date was posted as March 16 in a WARN notice sent to the Louisiana Workforce Commission, but employees of the Walmart next door and the other location of Sam's Club say the location closed today.

The spokeswoman said pharmacies at the closing Sam's Club locations will remain open until January 26.

BJ's Wholesale Club has a message for employees who got laid off from Sam's Club: Come work for us.

"We've made a decision to right-size our fleet and better align our locations with our strategy, " Sam's Club president and CEO John Furner said.


West Michigan has apparently been spared in one of the more drastic store closings in recent American retail history.

An employee of the Goshen Sam's Club said employees are unable to offer comment.

Walmart also announced that they are increasing the minimum wage to $11 per hour, and giving bonuses up to $1,000 to employees.

McMillon also said the company is "early in the stages of assessing the opportunities" that tax reform creates for Walmart.

Previously, Walmart provided fully paid family leave to salaried workers, while hourly workers received half pay during family leave.

The company will also expand hourly leave, "providing full-time hourly associates in the US with 10 weeks of paid maternity leave and six weeks of paid parental leave", it says.

The bonus will only go to employees who are not impacted by the wage increases - meaning they already earn more than $11 per hour.
