Walmart to reduce hours of operation


Night owls will have fewer hours to get their shopping done at WalMart.

The College Place store, 1700 S.E. Meadowbrook Blvd., is altering its 24-hour schedule, a corporate spokeswoman said.

Starting July 22, the store will go down to a 20-hour schedule, closing 1-5 a.m. daily, said Kayla Whaling.

She said signs have been posted to inform customers about the changeover.

Whaling did not give a specific reason for the schedule change. She said schedules are determined on a store-by-store basis.

“It’s a business decision,” she said. “We feel like we can provide customers with a shopping experience during the remaining hours we are open.”
