Walmart stores across the country will close

Las tiendas de Walmart en todo el país cerrarán

Walmart stores across the country will adjust their operating hours as the nation continues to take precautions in the face of the coronavirus.

The national retailer has announced that it will close overnight to allow employees to restock shelves and sanitize and clean the stores.    

”To better support our associates and serve our customers, we will adjust our operating hours beginning Sunday, March 15,“ Dacona Smith, executive vice president and chief operating officer for Walmart U.S., said in a letter post on Walmart.com. “Walmart stores and Neighborhood Markets will be open from 6 a.m. to 11 p.m. until further notice. This will help ensure associates are able to stock the products our customers are looking for and to perform cleaning and sanitizing.”

Stores on non 24-hour schedules currently will maintain their regular operational hours.

”As we make this change, associates will continue to work the hours and shifts they are scheduled, and our supply chain and trucking fleet will continue to move products and deliver to stores on their regular schedules,” her posted message continued. “As a reminder, we have a temporary COVID-19 emergency leave policy to support associates at this unprecedented time.
