REPORTS: SAM'S CLUB LOCATIONS ACROSS COUNTRY CLOSE WITHOUT WARNING

http://www.wwltv.com/mobile/article/news.../507158991

Employees say they didn't know about the closure until they showed up to work.

Sam’s Club locations across the country, including a store in Louisiana, abruptly closed Thursday without warning.

According to WBRZ-TV, shoppers found doors to Sam’s Club in Baton Rouge locked Thursday. The store’s phone went unanswered, and the location’s listing on the official website was deleted

Employees say they didn't know about the closure until they showed up to work.


A spokesperson for Sam’s Club told WBRZ that the closure was announced Thursday morning at a meeting with employees. The company says it will work with employees to transfer them to other Sam’s Club or Walmart stores in the area.

Spokesperson Anne Hatfield said she was unsure about how many people worked at the store, but a typical store has about 150 employees.

Multiple stores in the across the country experienced similar closures.

Employees tell KHOU 11 News in Houston that the stores closed without notice and they only learned about the closure when they arrived for work.

A voicemail message on a Metro Atlanta store says "This Sam's club is closed effective January 11" and points callers to their website to find an open location.

The news comes the same day Sam's parent company, Walmart, announced raises for some employees.

I dunno but there seems to be big things changing with Walmart. Hubby works on the trucking end, with a company that is a Walmart contractor. They are being bought out, not sure by who or what it will mean for their jobs. Everything hush hush with anyone attending meetings on the plans, having to sign Non-Disclosure agreements

One club in South Tampa was closed Thursday, but a sign on the door said it would reopen Friday.

These are more store operators that can't afford to pay their employees the $15.  I know, some are billionaires and just can't afford to pay a living wage to people.

I have been waiting for Sam's Clubs to be closing. The local one usually has less then 100 cars in the lot. Then across the street, Costco is packed. Sam's club could never compete and be as great as Costco. It is all about the volume and Sam's just never had it.

Dinesh D’Souza, in response to the news of Costco removing his latest book, America: Imagine A World Without Her, from its shelves, made the following statement on July 8.
Today, I was stunned to learn that Costco had pulled my latest book, America: Imagine A World Without Her, from all of its stores. This was despite the fact that the book had sold very well at the chain and that my movie of the same name was releasing on over 1,000 screens the very next day. Today, I am disappointed to learn that this news has been confirmed by Costco. This action confirms the suspicions of all freedom-loving Americans and is a direct attack on my livelihood which I take very seriously.

In a free society, Costco is free to ban my book, but their customers are also free to shop at other stores which don’t censor books. In the book and the movie, I talk about the shaming of Americans and a culture of intimidation and censorship that has been spearheaded by the President himself. It’s one thing for Costco executives to pal around with President Obama and donate almost exclusively to Democrats. But to turn their company into a tool for suppressing dissent against the government is another matter.

I urge all Americans to watch our film in their nearest theater and buy the book from an establishment that honors freedom of speech. Once they do that, they will understand why the President and his allies are so afraid of this message and determined to keep it from reaching the American people.
