NEW YORK — The mega sale at soon-to-be closed Walmart stores just got bigger.
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.
The discount retail giant announced on Jan. 15 it was closing 269 stores, including 154 U.S. stores. The smaller Walmart Express stores, which the company introduced in 2011, make up the majority of the closings, with 102 stores set to close.
