According to Wikipedia, Sam's West, Inc., which also conducts business under the name Sam's Club, is an American chain of retail warehouse clubs that are accessible only to members and are owned and operated by Walmart Inc. The company was established in 1983 and given the name Sam's Wholesale Club in honor of Sam Walton, who was the founder of Walmart.

Sam's Club, 2023

According to the January 26 article "Walmart, Sam's Club in Scarborough closed due to roof concerns", Sam's Club in Scarborough has been closed because there are safety concerns regarding the extra snow and water that has accumulated on the roofs of the buildings.

On Thursday morning at about ten o'clock, according to Deputy Chief John Brennan of the Scarborough Police Department, personnel came to the Walmart because the roof was leaking.

"These flat roofs are designed to drain, but the amount of water on the roof suggested a drainage problem," Brennan said. "This led to a concerning amount of weight on the roofs."

Brennan claims that the Sam's Club was shut down as well due to the fact that its roof follows the same design.

The store is closed until further notice.
