Unsurprisingly, it turns out it didn't have anything to do with Jade Helm.

The Labor Board’s spokeswoman Jessica Kahanek said Thursday that “this case is still under investigation.”

^will wait for the investigation to be complete.

For now, plumbing problems weren't found to be the closure issue, at least in this store that was investigated:

One news organization, Channel 8 in Brandon, Florida, looked into the claimed plumbing repairs and found it was a fictional cover story. "...8 On Your Side has found no paperwork and no work done on the plumbing," reports "According to Hillsborough County, Walmart didn't notify the county's permit department either. No one there has heard a peep from Walmart about any major repairs." The news outlet goes on to report: On Tuesday, 8 On Your Side stopped by the Walmart, and found no plumber in sight at the Brandon Supercenter, just hundreds of confused and concerned customers.

Wow! I thought the ninjas and the lizardmen would come pouring out any minute! Wait, they only have a mere 11 days of Jade Helm left. Better get moving, Houston and Dallas are still holding out. Now that I've mocking one of the silliest conspiracy theories ever, I wonder how many egg-on-your-face diehards will insist that despite the fact that nothing at all happened, it was a PREPERATION for something. Don't feel bad though, when Nibiru fails to make an appearance later this month, and the blood moon has come and gone, you'll have lots of sheepish company. After Pat Robertson predicted the world would end in 1982, he learned a valuable lesson. Never predict anything specific, especially with a definite date.

your source is dated five months ago, did they go back and check after that. if so, it doesn't say so.
did they check for permits later on, did they go back and see if there were any plumbers or condtruction workers there.

plumbing wasn't the only report of problems there.

The five stores popped out of a national analysis of the most severe issues that caused customers to have bad experiences at Wal-Mart, Lopez said. Each store had recurring issues of more than 100 incidents over two years that caused major disruptions such as the closing of the deli and overflows in bathrooms.

plus Florida is a Employment At Will state. from the wiki At-will employment

At-will employment is generally described as follows: "any hiring is presumed to be 'at will'; that is, the employer is free to discharge individuals 'for good cause, or bad cause, or no cause at all,' and the employee is equally free to quit, strike, or otherwise cease work."[5] In an October 2000 decision largely reaffirming employers' rights under the at-will doctrine, the Supreme Court of California explained:

so they could have fired anyone at any time for any reason with out even telling them why.

Have the stores been retrofitted in any way? Any new guard towers or anything else ominous?
