The store was closed Thursday to tell employees about the impending closure.
Garcia said stores in Scottsdale, Casa Grande, and Chandler will also shut down.
"After a thorough review, it became clear we had built clubs in some locations that impacted other clubs, and where population had not grown as anticipated", Sam's Club President and CEO John Furner wrote in a letter to employees.
"Sam's Club has been under-comping Costco's for multiple years now", said Edward Jones analyst Brian Yarbrough. "If you work in such a club, please make them feel welcome". "I'm certainly not in a position to second-guess those moves". UBS analyst Arpine Kocharyan has noted that Toys "R" Us, for example, has 183 stores located within a 15-minute drive of at least one other Toys "R" Us outpost.
"What a shame", the long-time customer said.
None of the closed Sam's Club locations are in the metro-east, including O'Fallon and Glen Carbon. KENS 5 in San Antonio reported that a store there will be open until January 26 and will be selling most of remaining stock for 25 percent off. All memberships will be reimbursed in full.
Many employees learned of their stores closing when they showed up to work on Thursday, according to local media reports. "A couple customers did come out crying", the security officer said. "The ones who remain will continue to receive low wages".

"Talking to a young lady checking out, there's a lot of people in this store and a lot of stores that'll be losing their jobs", says Tom Vesovich of Turtle Creek.
"Yikes", said Prescott Valley resident Holly Reynolds.
The store was not the only one. Many are fans of the gas prices. Shropshire said she feels bad for the employees.
"Two days ago I just renewed my membership I paid 45 dollars, so I was like aww", said Antonio Bustillos.
The closures came the same day that Walmart said it would lift the hourly minimum wage in the U.S.to $11 and giving out bonuses of up to $1,000.
Walmart also announced on Thursday that it would close 63 Sam's Club stores, converting about a dozen of them into distribution centers. A one-time bonus will be given to those Walmart employees who won't receive a pay raise. The decision essentially increases wages for anyone making below $11.00 an hour - but anyone already making above that, the union argues, might not see anything except the bonus.
Fees to join Sam's Club run from $45-$100 a year. Currently, Sam's Club operates 660 stores, but that number will be reduced by about 10 percent after the actions announced today.
