Some Closed Sam's Clubs Could Become E-Commerce Centers

MOUNT OLIVE, NJ — After the abrupt closure of 63 Sam's Clubs nationwide, including several in New Jersey, the company has announced that some closed stores will be converted into e-commerce fulfillment centers. Up to 12 of the 63 closed stores will be converted, the company said in a Thursday night statement, in an effort to speed up delivery of online orders. The first store to be converted will be the Memphis, Tennessee location. It was not clear which, if any, of the New Jersey locations would be converted into e-commerce centers. Mount Olive and Linden both closed effective Thursday; Princeton will close on Jan. 27. Walmart, which owns Sam's Club, has not returned Patch's multiple requests
