JAMESTOWN, N.Y. (WIVB) — The Sam’s Club store in Jamestown is set to close.

The Fairmount Ave. location will close to the public on January 26, but the last day for employees isn’t until April 13. The pharmacy in Jamestown will close along with the store.

Employees may be eligible for severance.

Other Sam’s Club stores around the country are closing, but not all of them.

In the Rochester area, stores in Henrietta and Greece are closing. Employees say they were notified on Thursday, and were then sent home for the day.

According to one employee who spoke with Nexstar contributing station WROC, the stores will reopen on Friday, with all items marked 25 percent off.

Sam’s Club did confirm with WROC that they are reopening Friday morning at 10 a.m., but whether or not items will have lower prices is not clear.

Henrietta’s Town Supervisor, Steve Schultz, told WROC that the Henrietta store is closing because they are not making money.

The stores in Cheektowaga and Niagara Falls will not be closing.

Sam’s Club members can still use their membership online or at other local stores. Cancellation is also an option.
