Sam's Club in Dover spared amid nationwide closings

Sam's Club to Close Several Illinois Locations

Stores that are converted will turn into regional distribution centers or e-commerce facilities.

Walmart just announced that it plans to hand out thousands of pink slips across its corporate office, as well as at store-level. This move lowers the U.S. Sam's Club store count to 597.

The Sam's Club in Sylmar, one of three locations in Southern California that will permanently close their doors, is offering 25 percent on most products from Friday through at least Sunday.

Sam's Club is a member's only retail warehouse club which was founded by Sam Walton in 1983 and owned and operated by Walmart.

Fees to join Sam's Club run from $45-$100 a year. Making Change at Walmart, a campaign backed by the United Food and Commercial Workers International Union, estimates that 150 to 160 people work at each Sam's Club store, meaning the closures could affect about 10,000 people. "We need to make sure we have the right mix".

The company said it will provide support and resources to those affected by the closures, including up to a $1,000 one-time cash bonus made possible - according to the company - by the new federal tax law.

The closures come the same day Walmart Stores Inc.

"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 in a prepared statement.

Sam's Club, which first opened in 1983 in Oklahoma but has since expanded across the country and overseas, is a chain of warehouses operated as clubs offering memberships.

"There were a few locations where we felt there was no easy way to keep them open", he said, adding that some of the stores will remain open for a few weeks. "I am interested in working for a bank and focusing on going to college full-time, and I want to be able to afford a college education", he said.
