Wal-Mart store closings affect nearly 500 employees in Milwaukee area

A total of 487 employees will lose their current jobs when Wal-Mart Stores Inc. closes four Milwaukee-area locations this month, but all of the workers will have the opportunity to transfer to other Walmart or Sam’s Club stores in the area.

Bentonville, Ark.-based Wal-Mart Stores (NYSE: WMT) notified the Wisconsin Department of Workforce Development of the separations this week in a mass layoff notice filed as part of its move to close the four stores.
