Walmart is closing three locations in the Chicago suburbs.

Walmart revealed some tweaks to its store footprint — but just a little.

The retail giant is closing three stores in the Chicago suburbs.  Two of the stores, in Plainfield and Homewood, will go dark by March 10. The third store is an early pickup and delivery-only prototype in Lincolnwood. It is scheduled to close on Feb. 17.

The Homewood and Plainfield stores are closing following a “thorough review process” found the stores hadn’t performed as well as hoped, reported the Chicago Tribune. The report also said that Walmart is closing its other pickup and delivery-only store, which is located in its hometown of Bentonville, Ark.

In other closings, Walmart is shuttering its store at Timmerman Plaza, on the northwest side of Milwaukee, as well as its store in southeast Albuquerque, N.M.

In addition, a Walmart Neighborhood Market in Pinellas Park, Fla, is scheduled to close.

Meanwhile, Walmart’s Sam’s Club division has embarked on its most aggressive expansion in years.
