Sam's Clubs across the country are closing including these Chicagoland locations

Two Sam's Club stores in the Rochester area and one in Syracuse will also close.

Wholly owned by affiliates of Leonard Green & Partners, CVC Capital Partners and its management team, BJ's operates 215 warehouse clubs and 133 BJ's Gas locations in 16 states.

Sam's Club will close one of its stores on San Antonio's North Side amid a wave of national closures for the retailer, a company spokeswoman said Thursday.

"We've chose to right-size our fleet and better align our locations with our strategy", Furner wrote.

The Sam's Club location at 12919 San Pedro Ave. will permanently close January 26, said Anne Hatfield, a spokeswoman for parent company Walmart. "We will be closing some clubs, and we notified them today".


A total of four stores in Texas are expected to close.

Customers packed into the Dover Sam's Club on Friday, relieved the membership wholesaler was still open after so many other locations had been closed. Come to BJ's, is the message from the competitor store.

The company said it will provide support and resources to those affected by the closures, including up to a $1,000 one-time cash bonus made possible - according to the company - by the new federal tax law.

Stores that are converted will turn into regional distribution centers or e-commerce facilities.
