Walmart Closes Another Round Of Stores Including One In This Texas City
It's hard to imagine a retail giant like Walmart closing any stores. It was July 2, 1962, when Sam Walton opened up the first Walmart in Rogers, Arkansas. Since that time it's been built to become one of the biggest companies in the United States.
Times can be brutal for retail companies. If you've ever worked in the field, you know what I'm talking about. It's a numbers game a bunch of the time. If your store underperforms, it closes. As cutthroat as it seems, that's big business nowadays.
Big business doesn't come any bigger than Walmart. MSN reports a new round of store closures which includes a Texas location. The company is also tapering down its only two remaining pickup locations. That's not the worst of it. Hundreds of employees will lose their job as five e-commerce fulfillment centers across the United States also close.
