Walmart is shuttering some of its Sam's Club locations, with some stores reportedly closing their doors across the U.S.as early as Thursday.

Sam's Club, replying to a message from a Twitter user criticizing the chain, says it chose to close a series of clubs to "better align our locations with our strategy". "Closing clubs is never easy and were committed to working with impacted members and associates through this transition".

No formal announcement had been posted Thursday morning by Sam's Club, but the company acknowledged the closures on Twitter with a general statement. Stay with tampabay.com for updates.

According to social media, Sam's Clubs are also closing in Cincinnati and Memphis and several other cities.

The fax reported the store employs 168 people. Some demanded refunds for their Sam's Club memberships, which cost between $45 and $100 a year. "Got a call today to not come in to work and I asked why and didn't get an answer", said one employee, who didn't want to be identified.
