Walmart on Bush River Road to close in February

COLUMBIA, S.C. (WIS) - The Walmart Supercenter on the 1300 block of Bush River Road has announced it will be closing its doors.

The company says the decision came after a careful and thoughtful review process.

The store is expected to be closed to the public by Friday, February 5.

The Pharmacy will close on Friday, January 22. Pharmacy staff will work with customers to transfer prescriptions to another convenient location.

In the coming weeks, Walmart will begin clearance sales at the store in order to sell through as much remaining merchandise as possible.

The store has offered to help sales associates transfer to other Walmart Centers.

All associates will be paid through Friday, April 9 unless they transfer to another location. After that date, if they do not transfer, eligible associates will receive severance.

“We are grateful to the customers who have given us the privilege of serving them at our Bush River Road location. We look forward to serving them at our other Columbia stores and on,” Global Corporate Affairs Director Phillip Keene said.
