100+ to be laid off in Sam's Club re-design

PROVIDENCE, R.I. – The Sam's Club store in Warwick is closing for a major redesign. As a consequence, the store's 113 employees will be laid off.


A spokesman for the Walmart corporation says they'll be given 60 days of pay plus severance and will be considered for openings in other stores.


The company has not said how long the remodel will take. But in the meantime, Sam's Club members can use the store in Seekonk, Massachusetts.
