Downtown Columbia Walmart to close Friday
COLUMBIA — Walmart announced Monday that it will close its location in downtown Columbia this week.
The Walmart at 308 S. Ninth Street, near the University of Missouri campus, will remain open until 7 p.m. on Oct. 7, according to a press release.
The store first opened January 2014 to mixed reviews.
In January 2016, Walmart announced it would close more than 150 U.S. stores, including 102 mini-store locations similar to the one in Columbia.
The company said it will help customers in transferring pharmacy prescriptions to other Walmart and Sam's Club locations.
The press release said "various factors" were considered in deciding to close the location.
