Walmart store closure list does not include Illinois Valley locations

Posted by wlpo on January 15, 2016

Walmart fans in the Illinois Valley can breathe a sigh of relief. No local Walmart stores are among the 154 stores being closed in the U.S.

Only two stores in Illinois are on the closure list. Two so-called “Walmart Express” stores in Chicago will close Sunday.

A dozen supercenters are on the closure list with four of them in Texas. Four Sam’s Club stores will also close across the country.

Walmart decision makers say the store closures are based on financial performance and “strategic alignment with long-term plans”.
