Walmart is closing at least 11 US stores across eight states.
The stores include one Walmart Supercenter in Lafayette, Louisiana, and Walmart Neighborhood Market stores in Arizona, California, Kansas, South Carolina, Tennessee, Virginia, and Washington.
The closing date for most of the affected stores is April 19, according to employees of those stores, who confirmed the closings to Business Insider.
Walmart representatives had previously confirmed the closings to various local media outlets but did not immediately return Business Insider's request for comment.
Walmart Neighborhood Markets are about one-fifth the size of a Walmart Supercenter, and they are typically in areas that are more urban than where Supercenters are located. These stores focus primarily on selling groceries.
Walmart said last month that it planned to open fewer than 10 new stores over the next year. The company did not provide guidance on closings at the time.
