Walmart is closing dozens of Sam's Club warehouse stores across the country, with some stores abruptly closing their doors on Thursday. The company said the location would close by January 26.

The store's automated voice messaging service said the store would be closed Thursday but reopen Friday.

The store wasn't underperforming, Hatfield said, but the company made a decision to close the location as part of a review regarding the "right mix of clubs" and emphasis on e-commerce under CEO John Furner.

"We know this is hard news for our associates and we are working to place as many of them as possible at nearby locations", John Furner, president and CEO of Sam's Club, said in the statement.

The Sam's Club on Madison's west side will be permanently closing at the end of the month.

Employees told Planet Princeton they were informed the store will be closing for good on January 20.

Walmart, which owns Sam's Club, has not announced which stores are closing.

Several people who use Sam's Club stores to fill prescription medications can either go to another store for service, or according to the company, will have two weeks to find a new source for that service. Hearing other stores also affected. The company operates 85 Sam's Clubs in Texas and its biggest competitor everywhere is Costco, which has historically generated average store sales that are twice the rate of a Sam's Club.
