Walmart will be closing more stores in 2023, with the number now reaching 23 locations in 12 states and Washington, D.C.
The retailer cited financial losses as the reason it closed four stores in the Chicago area last month, as well as the reason it closed the last remaining stores in Portland, Oregon in March.
Walmart CEO Doug McMillion said in a statement that record-breaking retail theft had hurt the company’s economic performance in 2022.
“Theft is an issue. It’s higher than what it has historically been,” McMillon told CNBC. Prices “will be higher and/or stores will close,” McMillon said if Oregon authorities failed to address rampant shoplifting.
