6 TVs stolen from Chatham Walmart

An offender stole six TVs from a Walmart on Chicago's South Side Wednesday morning.

At about 8:56 a.m., a 37-year-old woman reported that an offender exited a red Buick SUV and took six televisions from the Walmart located at 8431 S. Stewart Ave.


The offender then fled the scene.

The Chatham Walmart that was robbed is one of four locations that the retail giant announced it will be closing by this Sunday.

Walmart pointed to dwindling profits as the main reason it is shuttering those stores

"The simplest explanation is that collectively our Chicago stores have not been profitable since we opened the first one nearly 17 years ago – these stores lose tens of millions of dollars a year, and their annual losses nearly doubled in just the last five years," the company said in a statement.

No one is in custody.
