    The two Ohio closings are only 25 minutes apart and are only two of the six or so in the Cincinnati area.

    Maybe they should just stay open and announce they are closing every couple of months. lol
    Like the furniture stores do.

    Shame that they are closing a bunch of them, I live only a few miles from Walmart central, and nothing else seems to have a chance. They opened up a sams last fall fairly close but I don't buy from them Walmart is cheaper and I don't have to buy a year supply at one time..

    Its also occurring in their Walmarts (closing and restructuring)
    A friend of mine in East Tennessee who has been with Walmart for more than 20 years from a stockboy all the way up to a co-manager of a Walmart store which included moving his family 3 times to stores out of the state of Tennessee has been told this week that his position is being phased out and he's getting a 2 month severance check shortly.
    Walmart may have overextended themselves over the last decade with so many stores opening up in many other countries and expanding into grocery stores also.
    Add that into forcing high wages and bonuses?

    Agreed. My friend and two other store co-managers in the area are being replaced by one guy on a regional coverage approach. Walmart just saved 6 figures easily by eliminating those three spots in TN alone.

    They cited transportation cost as one of the reasons for closing the 3 in Alaska, no problem believing that, but then again the very same trucks deliver to the 4 wallmart stores, HMMM.

    The one here (an hour away) sent a representative to meet with teachers in our small rural school system when it opened in the early 90ís. They gave us all free memberships, but we had to pay a 5% upcharge when we shopped there. I think my card eventually wore out.

    I was a Costco member for a year because I bought my Rhino safe from them. At the time the closest store was in Louisville so I only went 2-3 times. I remember they had great apples.

    One near me has 25% off. We spent $500 on Sunday. Some great values.

    Even their alcohol is discounted.

    Walmart inc. is trying to catchup in the online market place. We shall see how this pans out.
