Walmart hasn't had to shrink due to pandemics and inflation like many other shops. The big-box shop has closed for several reasons.
Walmart shuttered five locations in Kentucky, Ohio, Connecticut, and Washington this spring.
In September, Hurricane Ian prompted the business to close hundreds of locations in Florida, South Carolina, and Georgia. This month, Walmart shuttered six stores nationwide.
In the following weeks, Walmarts will close in many states. One business in Barnwell, South Carolina, has already closed.
The Walmart store was briefly closed on Oct. 28 "due to an emergency situation," according to its Facebook page.
Walmart is "assessing any damage and reopening as soon as feasible," according to a post.
The Walmart Barnwell Facebook verified this on Oct. 29: "Your local Barnwell is still closed to consumers, but all associates should report on your usual shift.
Walmart's Pittsburgh store was closed after a financial evaluation. After a careful assessment, this judgement was taken.
"Our decision is based on various criteria, including previous and present financial performance," shop said in an interview.
Walmart told that underperforming store closures are "done on a case-by-case basis" Actively managing our portfolio is crucial to a thriving firm."
