In that announcement, however, the company made no mention of Sam's Club closures and has not indicated how many jobs will be lost.

Sam's Club is closing dozens of its stores, but none of those businesses are located in Wyoming, Senior Director of Communications Delia Garcia said Thursday. The move could impact as many as 11,000 employees.

Armstead said as many as 200 full-time and part-time employees were laid off from the closure in Linden alone.

A total of four stores in Texas are expected to close. IL loses the most locations at six.

Walmart will close 63 of its 660 Sam's Clubs over the next few weeks, with some shut already.
