Jamestown Walmart closes for cleaning
Officials with the Jamestown Walmart store announced the closing of the store for cleaning related to the coronavirus pandemic.
The Jamestown Walmart store closed today at 2 p.m. for a thorough cleaning by a third-party vendor, according to Tyler Thomason, a member of the Walmart media relations team.
The store will remain closed Sunday and reopen at 6 a.m. Monday, Tomason said.
"As you know, several areas across the country have seen a renewed increase in positive COVID-19 cases, and we want to assist health officials working against the pandemic," Thomason wrote in a press release Saturday. "In support of this effort, we have chosen to temporarily close our Jamestown, North Dakota, store location at 921 25th St. SW today at 2 p.m. as part of a company-initiated program. This will allow extra time for a third-party specialist to further sanitize the store and will also give our associates additional time to restock shelves and prepare the store to once again serve the community. We plan to reopen the store to customers at 6 a.m. on Monday, Nov. 8."
