Walmart Inc. is closing a pickup and delivery location in Bentonville, the company said Wednesday.

The facility at 3701 S.E. Dodson Road will close by Feb. 17, Walmart said in a news release.

Customers who've been served at this location can access the same services at nearby stores, Walmart said.

The 35 people employed there are eligible to transfer to another store if they wish, the company said.

The Bentonville-based retailer said the decision was reached after a review process, and that this particular facility had not performed as well as the company had hoped.

In an official statement from Walmart spokesman Brian Little, the company said, "We are grateful to the customers who have given us the privilege of serving them at our Dodson Road location. We look forward to serving them at our other stores in the surrounding communities and on"

Walmart, which employs nearly 1.6 million workers in the U.S., has thousands of employees at its stores, clubs and distribution centers in Bentonville.
