Walmart Raising Starting Wages to $11/Hour Offers Bonuses

Sam's Club, the warehouse division of Wal-Mart Stores Inc., is closing several clubs and transforming others to e-commerce warehouse facilities.

According to our sister station in Cincinnati, WCPO, employees at area Sam's Club said they had no notice of the closure before receiving a letter in the mail.

"We've chose to right-size our fleet and better align our locations with our strategy".

Sam's Club at Cortana abruptly closed today, impacting 176 local workers.

The decision leaves the Triangle with only three Sam's Clubs to choose from - west Durham, north Raleigh and a Raleigh location south of downtown.

According to the statement, as many as 200 full-time and part-time employees were laid off from the closure in Linden alone. The remaining places will remain open for a few weeks. He lied again. I am reaching out to Walmart this morning to make sure they live up to their responsibilities to assist employees at Sam's Club who have worked hard to benefit the company. He said he and his coworkers were told by a representative from Sam's Club's corporate office that their store was closing. Some demanded refunds for their Sam's Club memberships, which cost between $45 and $100 a year.

BJ's operates 180 stores in in 15 states. When you search for the Morrisville location on samsclub.com, it's no longer listed. The Fern Park location is also scheduled to close.

Nine stores said they were closed effective Thursday, and two more said they would close January 26.

The news comes on the same day that parent company Walmart announced that they would raise the minimum salary at their locations to $11 an hour, and that some employees would receive bonuses as part of the Trump administration's tax cut plan, which passed Congress late past year.
