Earlier this year, Walmart stunned residents in several states by announcing the closure of 154 stores.

The 154 U.S. closures include 102 of its Walmart Express stores, 23 Neighborhood Market stores, 12 Supercenters, four Sam’s Club locations, six discount stores, and seven stores in Puerto Rico.

The smaller Walmart Express stores, which the company introduced in 2011, make up the majority of the closings, with 102 stores set to close.

The company said 95 percent of the stores impacted are within 10 miles of another Walmart.

The stores that are closing include Walmarts in Okemah, Luther, Prague, Stroud, Wewoka and Watonga.

All of the Oklahoma stores that are shutting down will be closing their doors on Thursday.

Now, experts across the country say shoppers can take advantage of extremely discounted prices on everyday items.

According to CNN, items at the 137 Walmart stores set to close Thursday are now 75% off, up from 50%.

Some items are excluded from the discount, including firearms, ammunition, prescriptions, tablets and smartphones. Alcohol and lottery tickets are also not discounted.

To make sure the discount applies to the store near you, call ahead.
