Walmart will shutter two locations in Arizona and Nevada, the retailer announced on Monday.
The company will no longer carry the popular Walmart X line, the brand’s best-selling clothing line, in the Phoenix and Tucson markets, and it will close all of its stores in Las Vegas, according to a statement from the company.
The stores in Arizona will close early, Walmart said.
The stores in Nevada will close on Nov. 25, 2020, and the stores in Mesa will close in December 2020, Walmart spokesperson Jodie Kupka told Axios.
Both closures are expected to impact 2.3 million employees, Walmart CEO Doug McMillon said in the statement.
The closures will impact thousands of retail jobs.
The closures are the latest to hit the retail sector in the wake of the November election, as the Trump administration has repeatedly threatened to impose taxes on goods produced by American companies.
Walmart had previously planned to close two Arizona stores, but it later withdrew the announcement.
It is unclear if the closures will affect stores in other states, such as Nevada.
