Anne Hatfield, Director of Communications Walmart Public Affairs released the following statement:

“The Cantrell Road Walmart Neighborhood Market will close Nov 2. We are hopeful the associates there will want to continue their career with Walmart and transfer to one of the seven stores within eight miles of this location.

The decision to close the Cantrell Road Neighborhood Market is not an easy one, and is in no way, a reflection of the hard work and customer service provided by the leadership and associates at the store.

As a company, we are committed to Arkansas, as evidenced by our recent announcement to stay true to our Arkansas roots and build a new corporate headquarters in Bentonville, and by the constant stream of innovations we test in our home markets in order to better serve today’s customers.

We are grateful to the customers who have given us the privilege of serving them. We look forward to serving them at our nearby locations and online at”
