Word spread fast yesterday that Sam's club was closing 63 stores throughout the country.  As one of the top discount club stores in America, Sam's Club has a lot of customers - especially in northern Minnesota where other stores like Costco don't have store locations.

So how will the Sam's Club closures affect us in the Northland?  Are there any close stores that are closing?  Is the Hermantown location remaining open?   Let's first answer the last question:  Yes, the Hermantown location will still be open and no it is not on the closure list.  But there are a few Sam's Clubs close to us that are closing.

According to the list that's circulating among media sources, the St. Louis Park and the Moorhead locations in Minnesota and the West Allis and Madison stores are closing.

Cick here for the complete list.
