The Sam’s Club in Renton was shuttered today along with nearby stores in Auburn and Seattle.

Business Insider reported today that Walmart, the parent company of Sam’s Club, has closed 63 of its wholesale warehouse stores across the country. In a tweet, the company said it was closing a series of clubs to “better align our locations with our strategy.”

This abrupt closure of these Sam’s Club locations comes on the heels of the retail giant announcing its plans to raise starting wages to $11 in the U.S., provide one-time bonuses to its employees, and extend maternity and parental leave time.

“Today, we are building on investments we’ve been making in associates, in their wages and skills development,” Walmart President and CEO Doug McMillon said in a statement released this morning. “It’s our people who make the difference and we appreciate how they work hard to make every day easier for busy families.”
