Large crowds grab deals as Sam’s Club prepares to close South Tampa location

TAMPA — Large crowds have gathered to snap up some deals before the Sam’s Club in South Tampa closes its doors for good on Jan. 27.

On Thursday, the retailer announced it was closing dozens of stores, including a location at 5135 S Dale Mabry Highway that served South Tampa for 18 years.

In preparation for its closing on Jan. 27, the location is liquidating it stock by slashing prices by 25 percent — excluding tires and tobacco products, according to 10News WTSP.

Prescription records will be sent 17 miles away to the Brandon Sam’s Club on 2021 West Brandon Blvd.

Many customers took to social media to complain to the retailer and demanded a refund on their membership. The company provided a link where they could get a full refund.

Sam’s Club still has stores in North Hillsborough County, Wesley Chapel, Brandon, New Port Richey, Clearwater, Pinellas Park and St. Petersburg.
