Walmart closing three Neighborhood Market locations in San Antonio
SAN ANTONIO —
Walmart will close three neighborhood market stores in San Antonio as the retail giant makes adjustments to its overall strategy in Texas.
A Walmart spokeswoman confirmed the three stores would close on October 12. They are:
- Neighborhood Market #4661, 6938 Walzem Road
- Neighborhood Market #4670, 3418 East Southcross
- Neighborhood Market #5324, 3847 Pleasanton Road
Affected employees at each of the stores have been given the option to transfer to a nearby store.
Pharmacy staffers are also working with customers to transfer prescriptions to other locations.
Even with the announcement of these closures, Walmart Director of Communications Anne Hatfield says the retailer is making significant improvements to its operations throughout the city.
"Retail is changing quickly and innovation allows us to serve customers in ways never before possible. From grocery delivery, grocery pickup, pickup towers and remodeled stores, we are spending $277 million dollars in San Antonio and throughout Texas this year on new ways to save customers time. These new features and expanded conveniences complement our portfolio of stores in the market," said Hatfield in a statement.
