Walmart Closing 63 Sam's Clubs, Turning 12 into Ecommerce Fulfillment Centers

63 Sam's Clubs Closing, including 3 in Southern California

Arkansas-based Walmart also reportedly raised the hourly minimum wage for its US workers to $11 and improved benefit offerings such as parental leave. It will be converting up to 12 of the closed clubs into e-commerce fulfillment centers to help speed up the online order delivery process. That will put the company ahead of Walmart, which anticipates having its "Scan & Go" service at fewer than 200 stores by the end of 2018.

Walmart and Sam's Club did not immediately respond to a request for comment.

Dozens of Sam's Club locations are closing, but none on the list are in the Tri-State.

Walmart and Sam's Club now operate more than 5,400 locations across the U.S. After the reduction, there will be 597 Sam's Club stores.

Fees to join Sam's Club run from $45-$100 a year.

The Sam's Club location at 12919 San Pedro Ave. will permanently close January 26, said Anne Hatfield, a spokeswoman for parent company Walmart.

That figure was corroborated by Making Change at Walmart, a union-backed campaign advocating on behalf of Walmart workers, which told the Associated Press that around 150 or 160 people worked at each Sam's Club store, meaning the closures would affect around 10,000 employees. Come to BJ's, is the message from the competitor store.

"Transforming our business means managing our real estate portfolio and Walmart needs a strong fleet of Sam's Clubs that are fit for the future", said John Furner, president and CEO of Sam's Club.

The letter from Steve Orloski, Sam's Club market manager, was sent to Armstead and James Manning, of the New Jersey Department and Workforce Development.

The remaining stores will stay open for several weeks before closing permanently, according to Business Insider.
