Or, you can find a new location to shop at and continue paying into your membership as normal.
If you use a Sam's Club pharmacy, it will stay open for at least two weeks. After that the company will work with Indiana's Board of Pharmacy to work though the next steps.
The two closing locations sent a majority of the employees home Thursday with no notice and closed the store for the day, while other employees remained in meetings.
About 300 people will be terminated from the store closures, according to WARN notices to the Indiana Department of Workforce Development. All affected employees will be able to apply for open positions at other Sam's Clubs or Walmart locations. The employees affected by the closures received severance packages in the mail Thursday morning.
Multiple other Sam's Club locations across the country also reported shutting down, beginning Jan. 26. Sam's Club tweeted a statement on the closures, saying:
After a thorough review of our existing portfolio, we’ve decided to close a series of clubs and better align our locations with our strategy. Closing clubs is never easy and we’re committed to working with impacted members and associates through this transition.
