Employees at the west side Sam's Club location on Rockville Road were in the same meetings as the two closing locations, but didn't know for sure if the store would permanently remain open. Three stores in IN are being closed, two in Indianapolis and one in Goshen, according to a Sam's Club employee. USA Today reported that while those stores will reopen in a new role, workers previously employed at those locations are not necessarily guaranteed one of the new positions. Some locations closed Thursday while the remainder will be shuttered over the next three to four weeks, a Walmart official said. Ten of the stores will be turned into ecommerce distribution centers.

The chain, which competes with Costco, has more than 650 locations employing more than 100,000 people, with an average of 175 employees per store, according to the company.
