Sam's Club closing stores across the country; Tucson store spared

Posted: Updated:

Several Sam's Clubs locations across the country are closing effective immediately, but the Tucson store is reportedly safe.

An employee at the local store, 4701 N. Stone Ave., said they were not one of stores scheduled to close.

Closures are being reported by news outlets in Texas, New Jersey, Memphis, New York, Indiana, Tennessee, Connecticut, and Ohio. 

Employees say they didn't receive prior notice of the closures, instead, they reportedly arrived to work this morning to find the doors locked.

The announcement comes a day after Walmart, Sam's Club's parent company, announced an increase in the hourly wage to $11 for more than a million workers, along with an expansion of benefits. The wage change will be effective next month.
