Walmart Shuts Down 154 Stores in the U.S. After Raising Wages

Here is another example of the great recovery we’ve had under Obama. According to Tribune Media: “Walmart to close 269 stores, 154 in U.S.; 10,000 employees impacted.”

Walmart is closing 154 stores in the U.S., the company announced on Friday.

As part of a “sharpened focus on portfolio management,” the 154 U.S. closures include 102 of its Walmart Express stores, which were opened during a test that started in 2011.

The other closures include 23 Neighborhood Market stores, 12 Supercenters, four Sam’s Club locations, six discount stores, and seven stores in Puerto Rico.

The company said 95 percent of the stores impacted are within 10 miles of another Walmart.
