Local Sam's Club Closes Without Notice Thursday

MEMPHIS, Tenn (localmemphis.com) - Sam's Club on Getwell permanently closed its doors Thursday morning.

Employees say they were told when they arrived for a staff meeting.

News outlets are reporting closures across the country including Atlanta, Cincinnati, Houston, Indiana, New Jersey and New York State.

Sam's Club responded on Twitter to a concerned customer with the following statement: "After a thorough review of our existing portfolio, we’ve decided to close a series of clubs ... Closing clubs is never easy and we’re committed to working with impacted members and associates through this transition."

Sam's Club told Local 24 News that the pharmacy at most locations will remain open for 2 weeks.

Four Mid-South Sam's Club stores remain open: Two in Memphis, on Winchester and Covington Pike. The Southaven store on Goodman Road and the Bartlett store on Highway 64.
