Post Falls Walmart closing Friday afternoon for cleaning

POST FALLS, Idaho — The Post Falls Walmart will temporarily close Friday afternoon for a thorough cleaning. 

The location (6405 W Pointe Parkway) will be closed again Saturday and will reopen Sunday at 6 a.m. 

The closure is part of a company-initiated program to allow third-party crews to clean and sanitize the building. Associates will spend Saturday restocking and prepping the store. 

In a statement, Walmart said the cleaning is a part of their effort to help health officials amid the pandemic. 

Walmart announced in July it was requiring all market, regional and divisional associates who work in multiple facilities and all campus office associates to be vaccinated by Oct. 4, unless they have an approved exception.
