BENTONVILLE, Ark. — Walmart will be closing its doors later at most stores beginning next month, the retail giant said in a tweet Friday.

The Bentonville, Arkansas-based retail chain announced that closing times for Walmart stores and Neighborhood Markets will be moved from 10 p.m. to 11 p.m. beginning Nov. 14. Stores will keep their 7 a.m. opening times.

“This will give customers more time to shop and help us disperse traffic throughout the day,” Walmart said in its tweet.

Stores with more reduced hours will keep their current hours of operation.

Walmart officials said stores will continue hosting a special shopping hour every Tuesday for customers ages 60 and older and those most vulnerable. This starts one hour before the store opens. Pharmacies and vision centers are also open during this time.

In August, the retail chain moved their closing time from 8:30 p.m. to 10 p.m.
