Roughly 10 of the affected locations shut down as soon as Thursday, while the remainder will be shuttered over the next three to four weeks, according to an official with Walmart, Sam'sClub's parent company.
Sam'sClub, replying to a message from a Twitter user criticizing the chain, says it made a decision to close a series of clubs to "better align our locations with our strategy".

Sam'sClub says their customers will be refunded their 45 dollar annual membership fee.
