  • This rumor is unfounded. Walmart isn’t resuming 24-hour operations.

See the sources for this fact-check

Walmart ceased 24-hour operations after the coronavirus pandemic started in 2020, adjusting its store hours to 6 a.m. to 11 p.m. local time.

But a recurring rumor claims those hours are changingonce again.

"Walmart has announced starting June 3rd all locations in the U.S. will go back to 24hrs," a May 29 Facebook post said.

Joe Pennington, a Walmart spokesperson, told PolitiFact: "There are no current plans to return our stores to 24 hours of operations."

We found no credible news stories or public statements from the company to suggest otherwise.

In July 2022, the company responded to a similar rumor on X, posting: "At this time, we have no plans to return to 24 hour store hours."

We rate this post False.
