Yesterday, Walmart announced that it would be closing down a bunch of it's big box store Sam's Club. According to USA Today, 63 stores will be closing based on financial performance--most of those permanently with a few being converted into locations to handle on-line business. The company says they'll try to move employees from those closing stores to other area Sam's Club, Walmart and Walmart Neighborhood Market locations.
ABC Action News reports that in the Tampa Bay area, the South Dale Mabry Sam's Club will be closing. The store was shutdown yesterday when employees were notified of the closure, but is supposed to reopen today and stay open through January 26th--at which time, if you're a pharmacy customer, your prescriptions will be transferred to a different location.
