Moline's Sam's Club slammed with customers after closing announcement

"After a thorough review of our existing portfolio, we've made a decision to close a series of clubs and better align our locations with our strategy".

Customers packed into the Dover Sam's Club on Friday, relieved the membership wholesaler was still open after so many other locations had been closed.

Walmart confirmed Thursday that it is closing dozens of Sam's Club warehouse stores across the country - a move that seems sure to cost jobs - on the same day it announced that it was boosting its starting salary for us workers and handing out one-time bonuses to others.

"It's how we have to serve our customers", Hatfield said. "I am interested in working for a bank and focusing on going to college full-time, and I want to be able to afford a college education", he said. "But this isn't about Clubs versus online sales. We have figured out one in Memphis, Tenn., but it's too early to know about the others", she said.

Though numerous employees at the New Caney location were fairly new as the store opened just a year ago, Hatfield said some employees may still qualify for Walmart's new bonus system, which is based on length of service.

During much of the day, news outlets around the country reported closures had happened with no notice.

Further, employees who have worked with the company for an extended period of time will receive bonuses, with those who have worked there for over 20 years receiving a one-time $1,000 bonus. First, on 11 January, the company announced that it would increase the starting salary of employees from $9 to $11 an hour, give bonuses to some staff, and expand its maternity and paternity benefits programs. Before, full-time hourly workers received 50 percent of their pay for leave.
