Walmart to close down an East Valley store

Walmart Inc. (NYSE: WMT) has decided to shutter one of its Neighborhood Market stores in Chandler, the retail giant said Wednesday. The decision to shut the grocery store will impact 84 employees and leave the Kyrene Village shopping center, on the southwest corner of Chandler Boulevard and Kyrene Road, without an anchor. “It was a really difficult decision that was based on store performance and other factors,” said Tiffany Wilson, Walmart’s director of communications.
