If the Sam's Club you frequent will be closing in a few weeks, you have a choice on your hands about what to do with your membership.
Sam's Club is closing some of its locations throughout the U.S., as announced Thursday. The company has created a webpage with more information on what members whose stores are now closed can do. You basically have three options:
- Extend membership by 3 months for free (to use at a Sam's Club that will remain open)
- Full refund for membership by e-gift card, sent within seven days
- Full refund for membership via check, sent within six weeks
Or, you can find a new location to shop at and continue paying into your membership as normal.
If you use a Sam's Club pharmacy, it will stay open for at least two weeks.
Multiple Sam's Club locations across the country reported shutting down, beginning Jan. 26. Sam's Club tweeted a statement on the closures, saying:
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.— Sam's Club (@SamsClub) January 11, 2018
