Two Sam's Clubs in Wisconsin to close

Some Sam’s Club stores are shutting their doors

Diana Leavitt Lanham, of Loveland, OH, said she worked at Sam's Club for three years as an overnight stocker before she was terminated Thursday.

The official said at least eight stores closed Thursday and the rest would shutter in the coming weeks. Locations in Norfolk and Richmond are expected to close by March 16, according to state labor officials, with more than 300 employees affected.

Sam's Club shutdown? Employees at this S Loop store tell me they showed up to work and were told store is closed effective today. Signs posted on the door by management stated, "Sam's Club is closed today". The store is in a successful retail area that has plenty of redevelopment potential, he said.

A number of people are sending tweets to Sam's Club to ask questions about this issue. "We can turn a negative into a positive". The company did not respond to CBS News' request for a comment, and did not elaborate on how many stores would be closed and when.

Members of the closing clubs will be able to change their memberships to another location or cancel their membership, according to the company's Twitter account.

"Our hope is that many associates at the Club will choose to stay with the company via transfer and we'll begin working to make that happen", Keene said.

Notices filed with the Indiana Department of Workforce Development revealed that three Sam's Club stores in Indiana would be shutting down, while news outlets across the US began reporting possible closures in cities from Memphis to Atlanta to Houston.

An employee at the Chandler location confirmed that the store's last day of operations will be on January 26, as did an employee at the Prescott Valley store.

As of Thursday afternoon, the Sam's Club at 2925 Towne Centre Blvd.in Lansing Township remained open. The website Business Insider listed the Worcester location among those to close.

"We've chose to right-size our fleet and better align our locations with our strategy, " Sam's Club president and CEO John Furner said.

There are five Walmart stores in the Lansing region: in Lansing Township, Delta Township, Okemos, St. Johns and Charlotte.
