Walmart company officials have confirmed that they in fact will close all stores that operate 24-hours overnight to stop the spread of coronavirus and to restock products.
The company said on Saturday that beginning Sunday, March 15th, all stores currently operating 24-hours will be moving to a 6 a.m. to 11 p.m. operating schedule until further notice.
Stores currently operating under more reduced hours (for example they regularly close at 10 p.m. or open at 7 a.m.) will keep their current hours of operation.
Walmart officials said this is to ensure that staff at each store are able to restock products and properly sanitize the store.
