INDIANAPOLIS -- Shoppers rushed to Sam's Club stores in Indianapolis that are going out of business to take advantage of closeout sales on Saturday, which led to long lines out the door. 

The company is closing two Sam's Club locations in Indianapolis, the one at W. 86th Street and the one on Washington Street.  The closings will leave roughly 300 people without jobs.
