PITTSBURGH — The Walmart located in the Waterworks Shopping Center is set to close.
According to Walmart’s Communications Director in the North and East United States Felicia McCranie, the difficult decision was reached after a careful and thoughtful review process.
McCranie cited “several factors” that contributed to the decision to close the Freeport Road store, “including historic and current financial performance, and is in line with the threshold that guides our strategy to close underperforming locations.”
McCranie said all employees at the store will be able to transfer to other Walmarts in the area, including eight within 20 miles of the Waterworks Shopping Center.
“We are grateful to the customers who have given us the privilege of serving them at our Pittsburgh location. We look forward to serving them at our other stores in the surrounding communities and on walmart.com,” McCranie said in a statement.
The Waterworks Walmart is set to close on Friday, Nov. 11.
This is the same Walmart where a shooting that stemmed from a domestic situation inside the store happened on Dec. 14, 2021.
