While I was walking around the building, security came out and asked me what I was doing. Telling them full truth, I told them that I was a blogger and was writing a post in relation to Jade Helm. The security guard had not heard of the military drill, but told me the wire had been erected almost immediately after the Walmart closed 3-4 years ago to prevent thieves from stealing copper on the roof.
After he figured out I was not a thief in the night, we parted ways and I started making some calls to local buddies that are certified electricians.
My friend said that it’s not rare that businesses take precautions to prevent AC, Copper or other thievery once they shut down.
ST. PETERSBERG, Florida (INTELLIHUB) — Another closed Walmart has turned up. One “that’s not listed out of the five Walmarts that have been shutdown across the country” for alleged ‘plumbing issues’.
The Walmart that anchored that shopping center at Tyrone Boulevard and Park Street for 24 years closed July 15. The new Walmart opened 2 miles away on July 16.
Walmart owns the newly empty 122,000-square-foot store, which isn't listed for lease or sale at the moment.
