Sam’s Club will shutter 63 of its stores with customers and some employees saying no warning was given by the company

The tweet came after a series of reports from local news outlets said some Sam's Club stores were closed abruptly on Thursday, with employees learning of the move as they arrived for work.

News of the closures comes on the heels of Walmart's Thursday announcement that it would raise the minimum wage of employees from $9 per hour to $11 per hour beginning February 1 in anticipation of benefits from the GOP tax bill.

The Sam's Club is set to close on January 26.

Sam's Club employees and its customers were not given advance notice of the cutbacks.
