SAN ANTONIO, Texas – On the Northeast Side, Walmart is closing one of its smaller stores next month.
The Walmart Neighborhood Market at 3175 Nacogdoches Road in San Antonio will be shut down on December 4, a company spokeswoman confirmed.
The Neighborhood Market, which sells groceries and has a pharmacy near MacArthur High School, is about one-fourth the size of a Walmart Supercenter.
The retailer notified the state of 67 layoffs effective January 5. However, managers at nearby stores are eager to hire the workers, reported Anne Hatfield, Walmart’s director of communications for Texas.
There are 6 other Walmart locations within six miles, she said.
“Through continued innovation and investment, Walmart continues to lead the fast-paced change in retail in San Antonio and throughout Texas,” Hatfield said in a statement. “The closure of the Nacogdoches Neighborhood Market is one piece of a larger strategy to offer the service and convenience San Antonio customers want.”
