If you have a question, Iris St. Meran looks for answers. After a number of calls about the closing of Sam's Club in Syracuse, Iris tries to find out 'What's Up With That?'
A number of Sam's Club stores around the country are closing, including in Syracuse -- putting 151 people out of work.
The Vestal and Watertown stores told Spectrum News they would remain open.
The news was rather abrupt for not only customers but employees there, too. A sign posted outside the Syracuse location said the wholesale club was closed Thursday, January 11 and would reopen Friday, January 12 at 10 a.m.
Another sign on the building said the location would close permanently on January 26. Pharmacy customers were directed to Walmart stores in East Syracuse, Cicero and Camillus.
It's unclear at this time how many stores will close nationwide.
But as you can imagine social media is buzzing, the Sam's Club Twitter account responded to several customer's tweets saying, "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. Closing clubs is never easy and we’re committed to working with impacted members and associates through this transition."
