I know that this was posted a while back, but I have seen over time McDonald's vacating Wal Mart stores. I don't know if it's happenstance, or a corporate decision etc.

What about the Subway locations? Are those vacating too?
So, to the young people fighting in this movement for change, here is my charge: march in the streets, protest, run for school committee or city council or the state legislature. And win. - Ed Markey

McDonald’s is planning to permanently close 200 of its nearly 14,000 stores in the U.S., the restaurant chain announced Tuesday. More than half of the restaurants set to close are located within Walmart stores and are reporting low sales volume.

....Given the foot traffic required for McDonald’s locations to generate sales within Walmart stores, it’s not surprising that some locations are losing revenue as more people stay home and order groceries and restaurant meals for delivery or pickup.

On Tuesday's earnings call, McDonald’s chief financial officer, Kevin Ozan, said drive-thru purchases accounted for nearly 90% of the burger chain’s sales in Q2 as customers sought safer transactions. Diners also turned toward more digital ordering and delivery, Ozan said.

Walmart saw an initial surge of about 18% in store traffic when the first round of panic buying hit in March, but traffic dropped in late March and early April, according to an analysis by Reuters. The retailer also put capacity limits in place at its stores to promote social distancing, which could have affected walk-up sales at McDonald’s outlets in Walmart locations.

McDonald’s opened hundreds of locations inside Walmart stores in the 1990s, Restaurant Business reported. But over the years, Walmart has moved away from McDonald’s as it embraced fresher, more customized fare from Subway. McDonald’s had nearly 875 restaurants inside Walmart in 2012 and just over 630 in 2017, according to U.S. News & World Report....
