Walmart's corporate office out of Bentonville, Arkansas made an announcement today that they will be closing 269 stores across the US and the globe.


The closings will include 154 locations within the United States and Puerto Rico. Many people here in the Evansville area are likely wondering if the stores here are on the list. Will the employees here be looking for new jobs? They say nearly 16,000 Walmart Associates will be affected, but what about here at home?

After taking a look at the Corporate Walmart website, it looks like the stores in our immediate Indiana, Kentucky & Illinois area are in the clear. You can see the full list of store closings by visiting
