The Walmart Supercenter in Commerce, store No. 240, will no longer be open 24-hours a day starting in May.
Walmart Inc. is cutting the graveyard shift in hundreds of stores, part of the latest efforts by the world’s largest retailer to whittle down expenses across its sprawling U.S. operations.
The company is eliminating the overnight shift that restocks the aisles, along with other store support staff, at about 300 stores, and will offer to transition those employees to other hours. The impacted stores are primarily smaller ones with lower annual sales or customer traffic.
Walmart Inc. operates two additional Walmart Supercenters in Hunt County, one in Greenville and another in Quinlan. The Greenville store is not expected to experience any loss of hours, while the Quinlan store is still being evaluated.
