While the Sam’s Club in Norfolk is slated to close, the Newport News Sam’s Club will continue operating, a Wal-Mart spokesman said.

Sam’s Club — a division of Walmart Stores Inc. — is closing two membership-based club stores in Virginia — the Norfolk store and one in Richmond, Walmart spokesman Phillip Keene. The Norfolk store at 741 E. Little Creek Road is expected to close by Jan. 26.

Sam’s Club announced Thursday it would close 63 club stores with 12 of them converting to e-commerce fulfillment centers. After the closures, the company will operate 597 clubs.

About 140 employees in Norfolk are affected, according to a layoff notice online with the Virginia Employment Commission.
