RICHMOND, Va. (WWBT) - The Walmart on Campus store in Richmond will be closing July 12.

The store located at 912 Grace Street near the VCU campus opened April 29, 2015.

A representative said the store was part of a pilot program and that Walmart felt it had learned what it could from the stores.

The VCU location employs 25 people, and the spokesperson said Walmart is working with them to transfer their employment to other Walmart locations in the Richmond area.
