Sam's Clubs in Manchester and Orange Closing

Furner said that the company would try "to place as many associates as possible in new roles at nearby locations". Some closed Thursday; others will close later this month.

The Walmart official said it would too soon to know how many jobs would be eliminated with the Sam's Club closures.

The company will also expand hourly leave, "providing full-time hourly associates in the USA with 10 weeks of paid maternity leave and six weeks of paid parental leave", it says.

The employees at the San Pedro store will still recieve a bonus, according to Walmart spokesperson Anne Hatfield.

The Sam's Club in Budd Lake abruptly and permanently closed its doors this morning, reportedly taking employees by surprise.

"So, we're pleased to tell you that we're raising our starting wage to $11 an hour for Walmart U.S., Sam's Club, Supply Chain, eCommerce and Home Office hourly associates effective in February".

Those affected by the closure will also receive the wage increase and bonuses.

While the Sam's Club closure isn't good news, Manzi said "we will be able to announce another major wholesale club coming to Seabrook very shortly, at a different location".

Four Sam's Club locations in the Triangle - two in Raleigh, one in Durham and another in Wake Forest - were still listed as open on the company's website.

"We've made a decision to right-size our fleet and better align our locations with our strategy, " he wrote. The amount will range up to $1,000 for employees who have been with Walmart for at least 20 years. Walmart said the one-time bonuses would cost the company $400 million and will be based on length of service. Full-time hourly workers in the United States will get 10 weeks of paid maternity leave and six weeks of paid parental leave.

Walmart says that after the closings it will have 597 clubs.

Although Wal-Mart's move lifts its overall starting US wage from $10 an hour (after workers take a training course), the increase matches what's already the minimum wage in California.
