WASHINGTON — Walmart Neighborhood Markets will close this week after a massive wildfire devastated the region.
The markets, which are popular with residents, were slated to reopen Wednesday but they were delayed due to the wildfires.
The Walmart Neighborhood market is one of the largest retail stores in the United States.
The store had a capacity of 25,000 square feet.
It was the largest single-day sale in the U.S. in 2016.
The fire destroyed nearly half of the nearby Zion Market.
The market has remained closed since Sunday.
A Walmart spokesperson said the stores will reopen Wednesday, and the company is working with the U:P.
to provide all of the resources needed to reopen the market.
The market closed at noon ET Wednesday.
The city of Zion said it has closed the remaining area.
