Walmart plans to close three of its U.S. technology hubs and has asked hundreds of workers to relocate to keep their jobs, the Wall Street Journal reported on Monday citing an internal memo.

The retailer will close offices that house technology staff in Austin, Texas; Carlsbad, California; and Portland, Oregon, the report said, citing the memo from Walmart technology chief Suresh Kumar.

Walmart will pay for workers in the locations to transfer to other primary offices such as San Bruno, California, or the company’s headquarters in Bentonville, Arkansas.

Walmart last month said it will raise average hourly wages for its U.S. store workers starting February, as it seeks to attract and retain employees in a tight domestic labor market.
