This Major New Jersey Retailer Announced More Store Closings For 2024
Store closings are always concerning, and seem to be happening more and more recently.
It seems like we can't 'go more than a few days without hearing about a business shuttering its doors for good.
Even right here by the Jersey Shore, we see it happen every day.
Champs in the Ocean County Mall has announced that it's going out of business in the near future.
We also got word that Shooters in Tuckerton was getting ready to close up shop after a decade in the community.
Now, a major retailer has announced store closings in 2024, after already having to close 24 stores across the country in 2023.
Walmart Announces Major Store Closures, The First Of 2024.
You know times are tough when a retail giant like Walmart has to close stores across the country due to poor performance and earnings.
NJ.com reports that last year, in 2023 Walmart had to close 24 stores across the country, including laying off 200 people in the Garden State who worked at a Walmart distribution center.
Now, NJ.com is saying that more store closings are in the works for the massive chain.
Right now, it looks like Jersey is safe from closings as the two stores Walmart is closing in February this year are both located in California.
One in San Diego, and another in El Cajon.
However, it's still concerning that a store as big, popular, and steadfast as Walmart is announcing closures, hopefully New Jersey doesn't see the effects of these ongoing closures.
