Walmart Closing Stores in Menomonee Falls, Wauwatosa, Waukesha and Milwaukee
Walmart will be closing four stores in the Milwaukee Metro area on January 28 this year.
“The decision to close stores is difficult and we care about the associates who will be impacted,” said Doug McMillon, president and CEO, Wal-Mart Stores. “We invested considerable time assessing our stores and clubs and don’t take this lightly. We are supporting those impacted with extra pay and support, and we will take all appropriate steps to ensure they are treated well.”
As part of today’s action, the company will close 154 locations in the U.S., including the company’s 102 smallest format stores, Walmart Express, which had been in pilot since 2011. Walmart instead will focus on strengthening Supercenters, optimizing Neighborhood Markets, growing the e-commerce business and expanding Pickup services for customers. Also covered in the closures are 23 Neighborhood Markets, 12 Supercenters, seven stores in Puerto Rico, six discount centers, and four Sam’s Clubs.
The locations are:
N88W15559 Main St., Menomonee Falls, WI
S14W22605 Coral Drive, Waukesha, WI
3850 N 124th St., Wauwatosa, WI
