Wal-Mart reopens most Gulf region stores after Harvey

Sept 4 (Reuters) - Wal-Mart Stores Inc said on Monday it has reopened most stores in the Gulf region that were shut due to Hurricane Harvey.

The company said five stores along the coast where the hurricane made landfall remain shut.

Texas has been trying to recover from a storm that dumped some 50 inches (125 cm) of rain on the low-lying Gulf coastal region after coming ashore on Aug. 25, killing about 50 people. (Reporting by Yashaswini Swamynathan in Bengaluru; Editing by Leslie Adler)
