Sam’s Club, a network of centres of wholesale and retail trade 63 closes the store, and some employees and customers say that this is done without warning. In a press release issued late Thursday by Wal-Mart Stores, which owns Sam’s Club, said that 12 of the 63 seats will be converted to centers for online orders. This step reduces the number of points Sam’s Club in the United States to 597.

Walmart spokesman Greg HITT (Greg Hitt) suggested that in 63 stores are approximately 9 450 people.

“After a thorough analysis of our portfolio we have decided to close a series of clubs and better align the location of our stores with our strategy, commented in Sam’s Club. Closing stores is never easy, and we try to work with those affected”.

In a press release, Walmart said it will provide “support for those affected, including bonuses and payment for 60 days, and retirement for those eligible”. Federal law on introduction of changes and re-qualification requires that large employers provide employees notice 60 days before plant closures or mass layoffs.
