NH Sam's Club store to close permanently

Manchester, Orange Sam's Clubs To Close

Walmart is closing 63 of its Sam's Club stores nationwide following a thorough review of its existing portfolio, the mega-retailer confirmed with Progressive Grocer. Accounts are eligible as long as they do not expire before January 26, the date the stores will be closing. At least 29 were closed Thursday, it said, and others will stay open for a few weeks.

Sixty three Sam's Club locations across the USA are closing down - approximately 10% of the company's locations.

In a statement to WCVB, the company confirmed they "made the hard decision to close our Sam's Club location at 1 Tobias Boland Way in Worcester".

"It's closed today, to let associates prepare for the eventual closing of the stores", the Sam's Club employee told KTUU.

Any associates who haven't transferred at the end of the 60-day period will receive a severance, officials said.

Worcester was the last Sams Club location in MA, with other stores in Seekonk and Fall River closing previous year.

Local media outlets in Texas, New York, New Jersey and Arizona were some of those confirming stores being closed on Thursday.

Sam's Club, which is owned by Walmart, confirmed that 63 of their locations will be shuttered across the country, including the Worcester location, two stores in CT and one store in New Hampshire. The notice says 176 workers are affected by the closure.

Business Insider posted a Tweet from the Sam's Club Twitter account sent at 11:25 a.m., but by Thursday afternoon it has been removed from the company's Twitter feed. However, the store has yet to open, and Sam's Club has not provided a timeline for the beginning of construction.

The unexpected closure of Sam's Club in multiple states caught employees off guard Thursday morning as they arrived to find the doors locked.

This is a developing story and will be updated.

The company has created a webpage with more information on what members whose stores are now closed can do.
