Sam's Clubs In Colorado Stay Open: For Now

DENVER, CO -- The dozen Sam's Club locations in Colorado have not yet been put on the chopping block by Walmart in the surprise closing of many of the discount club's locations in other states. News of the closings came amid an announcement of a wage hike for parent company Walmart as the big-box giant raised its minimum wage to $11. Nationwide, 63 Sam's Club stores will close, according to a statement issued by the company. A dozen of those will be converted to "eCommerce fulfillment centers in a move that will speed delivery of online orders, with the balance of the facilities closing over the next few weeks." Sam's Club has Colorado store locations in Aurora, Castle Rock, Colorado Springs,
