Walmart announced today that it is closing 63 Sam’s Club stores throughout the United State. According to a press release, the retailer will close 19 stores in Illinois, including stores in Matteson, Romeoville, Naperville, Batavia, Woodridge, and Moline.

The Village of Romeoville was notified today of the closing of its Sam’s Club store. Steve Gulden, Romeoville Village Manager said, “This came as a surprise to us as Sam’s has demonstrated a strong sales increase each year since opening.”

Sam’s Club said via its official Twitter page: “After a thorough review of our existing portfolio, we’ve decided to close a series of clubs and better align our locations with our strategy. Closing clubs is never easy and we’re committed to working with impacted members and associates through this transition.”

This news came on the same day that Sam’s Club parent company Walmart announced that they would raise the minimum salary at their locations to $11 an hour, and that some employees would receive bonuses as part of the Trump administration’s tax cut plan, which passed Congress late last year.

Business Insider has provided a list of closings compiled from local media reports and Sam’s Club employees who contacted the publication. The list should not be considered complete at this time.
