The Beckley Walmart Supercenter will reopen Nov. 12 at 7 a.m.
Walmart released a statement on the temporary closure:
“As part of its ongoing proactive deep-cleaning initiative, Walmart on Tuesday made the decision to close its Supercenter located at 1330 N. Eisenhower Dr. The store was scheduled to remain closed through today and reopen at 7 a.m. Thursday.
The store reopened today at 7 a.m., but has since closed again to resume safety protocols and to restock shelves. The store is scheduled to reopen tomorrow at 7 a.m.
We apologize for any confusion this may have caused.“
The decision to temporarily close a store for further sanitization comes from a number of criteria that teams regularly monitor and can’t confine to just “one reason.” This can include regional case counts, advice from local/state health departments or at the direction of Walmart’s Chief Medical Officer.
