East Raleigh Walmart no longer open 24 hours a day
Posted August 27, 2015
Raleigh, N.C. — Raleigh residents who prefer to do their grocery and general interest shopping in the middle of the night have a myriad options to choose from — but not quite as many as they did a few years back.
The Harris Teeter in Cameron Village never closes, and neither do a scattering of CVS and Walgreens locations throughout the city, but the region’s largest and most comprehensive retailer, Wal-Mart, has slowly been scaling back the hours of operation in some of its Raleigh locations.
The Wal-Mart Supercenter on New Hope Church Road in North Raleigh was, until very recently, a 24-hour location, but has shifted to an 18-hour schedule.
The shift toward closing a number of Wal-Mart stores between midnight and 6 a.m. is not unique to Raleigh; Bloomberg reported in late July that the company would be making this switch at a number of its locations throughout the country.
There are three other Walmarts within Raleigh's city limits. The Walmart located at 6600 Glenwood Avenue also operates an 18-hour/day schedule, while both the Walmart in Brier Creek on Glenwood Avenue and the Walmart near the Triangle Town Center on Town Boulevard are, at present, 24-hour locations.
