The Sam’s Club in Myrtle Beach is safe ... for now.

According to the Business Insider, 63 Sam’s Club stores have closed or will do so in coming weeks. Not among them, however, is the Myrtle Beach facility located off of Mr. Joe White Avenue.

In fact, no South Carolina Sam’s Club stores are on the chopping block, according to a list offered by the publication.

Employees at some locations nationwide did not learn the news until “they found doors locked and a notice announcing the closing,” the report by the Business Insider said. Each Sam’s Club location employs approximately 175 people, and could possibly result in as many as 11,000 jobs being lost.

“After a thorough review of our existing portfolio, we’ve decided to close a series of clubs and better align our locations with our strategy,” according to a tweet on the Sam’s Club Twitter page. “Closing clubs is never easy and we’re committed to working with impacted members and associates through this transition.”

Those with Sam’s Club membership fees affected by the closings will be refunded, the company also announced.

The news comes on the same day in which Walmart announced it would raise the minimum wage of its employees to $11 per hour, in addition to $1,000 worth in bonuses for full- and part-time employees. Walmart also said it planned to expand employee benefits.
