Many were shocked to hear the news of 269 WalMart closings announced on Friday, 115 of which are in the USA. What some may not realize is that ALL of those stores are closing by the end of January. For many of these stores, Saturday was the last day to shop. Is your local WalMart on the list?

our of these stores are within driving distance of my home, in Southwest Missouri, and exclusively serve smaller rural communities. WalMart’s financial decision will certainly impact these communities. Keep in mind that many of the small “Mom and Pop” competitors have already, long ago, been driven out of business courtesy of WalMart’s presence. That is a fact of life in small-town-rural-USA. The closings are expected to effect 10,000 jobs.

Update: Newer estimates indicate the closings will eliminate as many as 16,000 jobs.
