Sam’s Club is an American chain of membership-only retail warehouse clubs owned and operated by Walmart, found in 1983 and named by the founder of Sam Walton.

Sam’s Club shut down multiple locations on Thursday and some employee’s say that they did it with no warning. Customers and workers learned about the stores closures on the same day Walmart started raising their pay and giving out their workers bonus because of the new lower corporate tax rate. They’re starting to pay their workers $11/hour compared to the federal minimum wage of $10.50.

Walmart is closing over 60 Sam’s Club stores within the next few weeks. Stores in Texas and Georgia got shut down today without notice. Sam’s Club didn’t give out any other specific details on what stores are getting shut down. Of the Sam’s Club locations that are closing, 50 of them will be going out of business for good and the remainder of the stores will be converted to distribution centers to help fulfill online purchases. Workers that have been previously been working there aren’t guaranteed that they will have a new job position.
