Sam's Club locations in Dover and Salisbury were not listed by parent company Walmart among the 63 stores that hare closing as part of a reorganization announced on Thursday.

Sam's Club temporarily closed the store Thursday and notified employees at the San Pedro store of the impending closure, Hatfield said. Typically, companies warn investors and shoppers - and employees - that they will be closing stores far in advance.

That store will close January 26th, but no word on what exact dates the other stores will close.

The Sam's Club in Sylmar, one of three locations in Southern California that will permanently close their doors, is offering 25 percent on most products from Friday through at least Sunday.

Several other states where CNNMoney has confirmed stores will be closing did not have such notices posted as of Thursday afternoon. He said it was too early to say how many people would lose their jobs since some will be placed at other Walmart locations or be rehired to the e-commerce sites.

Sam's Club said through Twitter that the pharmacies located in the Sam's Club locations that are closing would remain open for a minimum of two weeks, while it works with transferring prescriptions and contacting clients.
