Walmart plans to cut about 11,200 jobs at its Sam’s Club warehouse chain as it outsources its in-store product demonstrations.
The move is part of an effort to improve sales at Sam’s Club, which has underperformed compared with the retailer’s other fascias.
The cuts represent about 10% of the 600-store chain’s 110,000 employees. That includes 10,000 mostly part-time workers who offer
food samples and showcase products to customers in stores.
The retailer will also axe 1,200 staff who recruit new members for the chain.
