Walmart bosses failed to reach lease agreements with the property owners at the stores on Fletcher Parkway in El Cajon and on Imperial Avenue in the Logan Heights neighborhood of San Diego.

The retailer also noted that while business has been strong, the closing stores have not been meeting expectations, per NBC affiliate KNSD.

The U.S. Sun reached out to the locations and found there are closing sales going on offering as much as 50% off of items.

Shoppers in Logan Heights said they’re scrambling to find another affordable grocery option.

“I think it’s great for me, plus the neighborhood. It’s real convenient for me,” shopper Shane Evans told KNSD.

He visits the store two to three times a week, and the shelves were nearly cleared on his most recent trip as people took advantage of the closing sale.

“Albertsons, that’s the next closest store. One right off of Market Street, but the prices there are a little outrageous,” he added.

MORE CLOSURES COMING

Every staff member is eligible to transfer to another location and will be paid through May 3.

Shoppers have shared mixed reactions about the closure on social media.

“So sad since that is an underprivileged area, and I’m quite certain that many of that Walmart customers do not drive and depend on that store for their needs,” one woman wrote today on Facebook.

Another shopper wrote: “This is sad. Lots of folks will be impacted.”

But other locals said they weren’t surprised with the decision, with one person adding that people are “scared to go into that area because of crime and theft.”

News of these closures comes after Walmart announced it would open or convert 150 new stores and remodel hundreds of others.
