It was announced Tuesday that the Walmart Supercenter located in Columbia at 1326 Bush River Rd. will be permanently closing Feb. 5.

A representative from Walmart's pharmacy confirmed the store's closing, and said the pharmacy will be closing earlier than the store, on Jan. 22. The pharmacy representative said prescriptions are in the process of being transferred. Unless otherwise specified by the patient, all prescriptions will be transferred to the Harbison Walmart location, at 360 Harbison Blvd., Columbia.

Cola Daily was unable to speak with a store manager for additional details. However, other sources noted "low sales" being the reason for closure, according to a statement made by a company spokesperson. Any additional details will be updated when received.

It’s the demographic, should have never been a store in that area! Predators, shoplifters and thieves all prevail in that area!


"Low sales" ROTFLMAO the obvious reason is "shrinkage". That store has been a shoplifting fest for years. Then the arson. I predict the Harbison location will close sometime in the next 3-5 years.
