A decision made by Walmart recently has decided to close all Walmart Express Stores including a Supercenter.
Walmart is shutting down 269 stores as the company tries to cut costs and focus on e-commerce. More than half of these stores are in the US. With about 16,000 employees losing their jobs.
Included among the closures are all 102 locations of Walmart Express, its smallest stores. Express began in 2011 as an experiment with bodega-like Walmarts in spots, mostly urban and rural areas, where the company couldn’t open the sprawling “Supercenters” for which it is best known. But they were not successful.
Walmart hasn’t yet disclosed all of its closures outside the US.
