Walmart is closing or has already closed at least 17 stores across 11 US states and Canada.
The stores include Walmart Supercenters and Neighbourhood Market stores in Texas, Louisiana, Indiana, Arizona, California, Kansas, South Carolina, New Hampshire, Tennessee, Virginia, and Washington.
The closing date for most of the affected stores was April 19, according to employees of those stores, who confirmed the closings to Business Insider. A store in Bedford, New Hampshire, is expected to close in June, and another in Big Stone Gap, Virginia, is expected to close in July.
Walmart representatives confirmed the closings to various local media outlets.
Walmart Neighbourhood Markets are about one-fifth the size of a Walmart Supercenter, and they are typically found in areas that are more urban than locations for Supercenters. These stores focus primarily on selling groceries.
Walmart said earlier this year that it planned to open fewer than 10 new stores over the next year. The company did not provide guidance on closings at the time.
Walmart has more than 4,700 stores in the US, with 3,570 Supercenters and nearly 700 Neighbourhood Markets.
