I have been a retail manager for 25 years and have been through several store closings. A company that decides to shutter some unprofitable locations do not give those stores only 5 hours notice. They are given 4-6 weeks to sell off their inventory and clean out. A 5 hour notice means some emergency type event is taking place. What that event is, I don't know.


We knew our store might be closing 3 months out. Our District Manager and all the Store managers knew this, and were told, and all the employees found out down the line..

I wonder if anyone buying into this, has ever worked retail before.

To be fair, I've never been to a Walmart yet that wasn't packed, pretty much any time of day. I've been to the one near me at 1 a.m. and there were quite a few people there.

Why are Texas and Utah being labeled "hostile"? I guess I can see Texas having this label because our border is open and any 'terrorist' can get through but Utah is not on any border. Anyone have an explanation?

Someone on our local breaking news group on Facebook said that one of her friends who was laid off in midland because of this got called back in to clean.

The same lady said they are cleaning up a rodent problem.

Should have used union plumbers. Sounds like these stores just have legitimate plumbing issues and need some major overhaul.

A rodent problem? You get the professionals to do that, not some Walmart employee.

I don't think you need a professional to clean up rat crap and pee. I'm assuming that's what she meant when she said cleaning up a rodent problem, not the actual exterminating of the rodents.

Yes, you do need a professional to clean rodent feces, especially if you are a big company like Walmart. Rodent feces carry many different dangerous diseases, especially in the southwest, where there's bubonic plague and hantavirus. A company that makes its employees clean up that mess is open to many lawsuits.

Care to point out a single lawsuit that happened due to such? I can't find any. All I've found is they must have the proper cleaning equipment and be trained to safely clean it.

OSHA has this to say about hantavirus:

There are currently no specific OSHA standards for Hantavirus.

$1000 bet it's nothing except conspiratorial paranoia. Any takers? I'll write a cheque now and leave the name blank, except I'm right. Walmart for a FEMA detention center. lol. You guys are rich.

Doubtful a company like Walmart will make it's own employees do such work, they'll use outside contractors for that. Cheaper and no liability for the company. Most cleaning in the stores is handled by nighttime crews who work for companies under contract with Walmart.

If their trying to hide anything like a shipment of bad food that's been getting sold to the public or toxic building materials ,fear of lawsuits would be a good motivator for their weird behavior. I don't think too much hinges on what Walmart does anyway, lots of other stores sell the same Chinese crap, so nobody needs to worry about running out.

Lets look at this logically, shall we?


Yes finally, thank God you're here because, all these
other people, are completely illogical.


Believing in a "false flag" conspiracy when there is no evidence of that conspiracy, while ignoring all the mundane probable, likely and plausible explanations entirely, is absolutely illogical.

Forgive me for not instantly bowing down and believing that the big bad government is planning a false flag, just because some stores have temporarily closed down. I'm a bad ATS member, obviously.

Remember that saying? What was it again... oh yes, DENY IGNORANCE.

Texas has a history of "not taking kindly" to the federal government.

Texas also has the "Texas State Guard" which is a substantial military force that only takes orders from the governor.

Basically, if Texas really decided to secede, the federal government would have one hell of a fight to get it back by force.

It could well be Legionella (Legionnaires' disease) bacteria in the fire sprinkler cisterns or air conditioning evaporators. The systems installed could have been done by the same contractor and had screwed up leaving a risk. A school where i used to live was closed due to very same for nearly 6 months, our kids didnt mind though as summer holidays lasted till xmas lol.

5 Walmarts close for repairs and it seems everyone loses their minds.




What is the big deal? I did plumbing for a few years and there were cases where a bad batch of copper pipe had been used in developments and we were swamped with work gutting and replacing it. It was actually a national problem at the time.

I am not saying that is it, but how unlikely would it be for a huge corporation to buy bulk materials when they are building their own facilities?

It is a Walmart for krips sake. lol

Sozzi thinks Walmart’s first step should be closing the 300 U.S. locations producing negative sales growth of 5 - 7%. Conceding that closing 300 stores isn’t going to happen, Sozzi suggests McMillon close 50 stores “as a show of good faith to Wall Street.”

Any ideas on what we should be looking for as evidence?
And I have seen no claims to illogical belief of anything.
What I'm seeing tho is good logical speculation by our
members. You're not a bad member because your post came
across the wrong way. Nor am I for pointing that out.

This brings to mind a disturbing dream I had a few years ago. I worked for Wal Mart and we were paid to be participants in a government training exercise where we'd be put in a detention camp inside a store. Once we were in, it was disturbing since they took it seriously and you couldn't leave. You were supposed to assess what the experience was like and also to escape if you could, testing security measures, but no violence. I hated it and wanted out bad, I have a thing about confinement. Anyway we did manage to escape using plumbing access tunnels. We escaped and they congratulated us and wanted us to come back and renew the test but I refused never wanting to go back in there. Its all true and a coincidence but it is weird now in context. I had another dream where I hid in a Wal Mart store in plumbing tunnels during an alien invasion. I think Shawshank Redemption must come into play somewhere in my subconscious.

I hope this comes down to nothing . But my spidey senses are ringing strong on this one


Same here. I've been noticing a whole lot of strange stuff lately that; on the surface and absent of any specific context, might seem to be perfectly innocuous and completely random. But when something like this is going on, it really makes me go back and start looking at the other stuff with a more discerning eye. I am not a believer in "coincidence". This gives me a very bad feeling that I can't shake, and when that happens, I pay attention. This is one of those cases in which I fervently hope that I am wrong.

Adore your avatar pic by the way
