Sam's Club Closes Locations Immediately As Parent Company Walmart Announces Wage Hike


On the same day as MicMillon's announcement, however, the retailer more quietly announced the closure of dozens Sam's Club wholesale warehouses across the country.

In reality, Walmart has announced the imminent closure of 63 Sam's Club stores.

As for the manner in which employees were notified about the layoffs, Hatfield defended the corporation, saying there is never a good time to deliver bad news.

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's not clear how many employees work at the San Pedro location but Sam's Club stores typically have about 150 employees, Hatfield said.

The one-time bonus represents a $400 million expense, the company said. The money is applied to adoption agency fees, translation fees and legal expenses.
