RALEIGH, N.C. (AP) - Seventeen Wal-Mart stores in North Carolina are among the 269 stores that the Arkansas-based company is closing in the United States and Brazil.

In North Carolina, 16 of the stores are a Wal-Mart Express, which the company opened as a pilot in 2011. Wal-Mart is closing all 102 of those stores. The 17th store is a Wal-Mart Supercenter in Durham.

The Wal-Mart Express stores that are closing in North Carolina are in Princeton, Coats, Four Oaks, Broadway, Red Springs, Stedman, Oriental, Benson, Carthage, Pikeville, Liberty, Richfield, Yanceyville, Snow Hill, Ayden and Midway.

More than 95 percent of the stores set to be closed in the U.S. are within 10 miles of another Wal-Mart.

The store closures will start at the end of the month.
