The Walmart in Tysons has been closing early due to the protests against racism and police brutality, store employees say.
Two employees said the store (1500 Cornerside Blvd) has been notified by higher-ups at the “last minute” about closing at 5 p.m. Usually, the employees and managers don’t know how late the store will stay open until around 4 p.m. each day.
@TysonsReporter FYI, Tysons Walmart just closed. No explanation given, they just told everyone to checkout and leave.

Shoppers looking to visit the store in the evening should call around 4:15-4:30 p.m., one employee advised. Walmart’s website does not mention the store’s hours early closings.
The store will likely close at 5 p.m. tonight (Friday), the employee said.
Due to the threat of looting, some Walmart stores have been closing early or temporarily closed last Sunday around the country. In Virginia, Walmart stores in Stafford County have been closing early at 5 p.m., Potomac Local News reported.
