The Walmart Neighborhood Market on West Bowles Avenue closed permanently Jan. 17.
The store is among 154 Walmarts closing across the country, said company spokeswoman Anne Hatfield. The bulk of the closures under way involve Walmart Express stores, which have been in operation since 2011. Only a handful of neighborhood markets and supercenters are closing, she said.
A corporate decision about closing selected Walmart stores has been under consideration since last fall, Hatfield said.
