Walmart Supercenter in PRP closes permanently

The Supercenter will close by Friday, April 22. The 306 employees are eligible to transfer to other Walmart locations.

LOUISVILLE, Ky. – The Walmart on Raggard Road near the Pleasure Ridge Park (PRP) neighborhood in Louisville will permanently close next month, the company confirms.

According to Walmart communications director Brian Little, the decision was made based on several factors, including “historical and current financial performance.”

“This decision was not taken lightly and was only made after a thorough review process,” Little said.

PRP Walmart opened in 2008 and serves the community of Pleasure Ridge Park and greater Louisville from.

The store is expected to close by Friday, April 22.

Walmart says the closure is in no way a reflection of the hard work and customer service of associates there, and every employee is eligible to transfer to a new location.

“Our associates are the heart of the business and our priority is to take care of them during this transition,” said Little.

The store employs 306 associates at the PRP site.

Throughout Kentucky, there are 102 Walmart and Sam’s Clubs stores, and the Walmart Foundation donated $18.7 million to state and local nonprofits in 2021.
