Sam’s Club reportedly transitions store into e-commerce hub

Walmart’s wholesale club store division is putting one of its closed stores to good use.

A Sam’s Club that closed earlier this year in Matteson, Illinois, will be transitioned into an e-commerce fulfillment center for the retailer. This is Sam’s Club’s second e-commerce distribution hub in the United States, according to the Chicago Tribune.

Kevin Thompson, Walmart’s director of public affairs and government relations, said in the report that the center will be a regional hub for online deliveries made by Sam’s Club members. It will serve customers in an area of a several hundred-mile radius of Chicago.

The company will start retrofitting the store next month. Sam’s Club expects to have the facility operational by the end of this year, according to the Chicago Tribune.

The store was part of approximately 60 Sam’s locations that Walmart closed in January.
