Walmart is cutting hours at its 24-hour stores nationwide starting Sunday due to growing fears of the coronavirus pandemic.

Beginning Sunday, March 15, Walmart stores and Neighborhood Markets will be open from 6 a.m. to 11 p.m. until further notice.

“This will help ensure associates are able to stock the products our customers are looking for and to perform cleaning and sanitizing,” Dacona Smith, Executive Vice President and Chief Operating Officer for Walmart said in a statement.


Associates will continue to work hours and shifts they are scheduled, and Walmart’s supply chain and trucking fleet will continue to move products and deliver to stores on their regular schedules.
