BENTONVILLE, Ark. (AP) — Wal-Mart said Monday it will close 10 money-losing Sam's Club stores and cut 1,500 jobs to reduce costs.

The stores will close Jan. 22. They are in Nampa, Idaho; La Quinta, Calif.; Louisville, Colo.; Vista, Calif.; Rolling Meadows, Ill.; Clay, N.Y.; and Irvine, Calif. The cities of Houston, Phoenix and Sacramento, will each lose one store.

Yes, I just read in today's Desert Sun that they are closing our La Quinta location. That's where I buy my gas because it's less than 1/4 mile from my house! Now I'll have to go to the overcrowded Costco Gas Center!

I wouldn't be surprised if the one here, in Prescott Valley, Arizona, will be next. My friend works there and I don't think he'll be happy. They just opened back in November 2008.

I like going to Sam's Although I don't see any in my area closing, so it seems. Hopefully, it won't come to that but I do feel for those who like Sam's in areas where it is closing.

At least it's easier once you've shown your card and start looking around only to realize that you need to use the bathroom, easy access to and fro. Wish I could say the same for Costco. I've got to go down almost all the aisles before I can find a space to get past between all the customers checking out at the cashier's. Same issue trying to get back to the shopping area and heaven help ya if you've got a few kids in tow and one has to go real bad. This has been my experience with Costco anyways. Prefer Sam's.
