Walmart is to close its locations in Portland, Oregon, as the stores have not been meeting “financial expectations.” Walmart CEO Doug McMillon stated more store closures may come across the nation as many cities are experiencing “rampant retail theft.” McMillon added, “Theft is an issue. It’s higher than what it has historically been.”
