Since the time Walmart announced it would close many of its stores across Chicago, Illinois, and other parts of the United States, buyers and employees seem to be unhappy. The company, however, says that the decision of closing the stores is made due to poor business performance.

The simplest explanation they give is that many stores in Chicago have not been profitable since the time they were opened. The company had to lose millions of dollars every year and the annual losses doubled in the past five years (source).

Not only the company has been affected, but also buyers and Walmart workers seem to be unhappy.
