Walmart Makes HUGE Announcement That Will Affect Thousands Of People

Walmart announced on Friday that they are shutting down 269 of their 11,000 stores.  According to Fox News, 154 of the store closures will be taking place in the United States and the remaining closures will take place in the South American market.

Fear not, Walmart fans.  95 percent of the U.S. stores that are closing are within a 10 mile radius of another Walmart store.

The real inconvenience won’t be to the consumer, but instead a burden will be placed on the thousands of people who work at those 154 locations. 

Since the announcement, Walmart has said that they are working hard to make sure that all the employees are placed in the nearest stores.
