Sam’s Club Abruptly Closes Dozens of Stores as Walmart Touts Raises

Sam’s Club on Thursday abruptly shut down dozens of stories nationwide, on the same day that its owner Walmart announced that it was raising its minimum wage to $11 and handing out $1,000 bonuses as a result of the GOP tax cuts. The closings were kept under the radar until laid-off employees took to social media to complain, prompting Sam’s Club to confirm that 53 stores were closing and 10 stores were being converted into fulfillment centers.
