Wal-Mart plans to close 269 stores worldwide, including 29 in Texas and a high-profile Neighborhood Market location on Lower Greenville in Dallas. The last day for most of the stores will be Jan. 28.

 

While Wal-Mart has closed stores overseas and even left entire markets, it hasn’t made a practice of closing big swaths of stores in the U.S. Wal-Mart CEO Doug McMillon had said in October that the company was reviewing its store fleet, including its 4,600 U.S. stores.

Wal-Mart spent a lot of time and money on opening the Lower Greenville store, converting an empty building that used to house Whole Foods and Blockbuster and dealing with a strong outcry from Lower Greenville neighborhoods. It also agreed to not be open 24 hours.
