Hanford store unaffected by Wal-Mart closures

Wal-Mart’s plans to close 269 stores worldwide — 154 in the U.S., nine in California — won’t affect the Hanford supercenter, according to other media reports.

Two locations in the Bay Area and seven in Southern California are slated to shut down as part of a reorganization plan.

The retailer doesn’t appear to be shrinking its overall U.S. footprint. To go along with the closures, Wal-Mart plans to open more than 140 new stores nationwide and open or expand nine additional stores in California.
