News :: Protest, Resistance and Direct Action
Wal-Mart shut down due to bomb threat on buy nothing day Current rating: 0
29 Nov 2004
Someone said that they heard on Fox News that a Wal-Mart in Warrenton Missouri had SHUT DOWN for 5-6 hours friday (buy nothing day) - I looked for the story online, but instead I found a bunch of other stories of past bomb threats at Wal-Mart stores - which all led to an evacuation of the store.
while I couldn't find that certain article online (which, apparantly someone wrote a bomb threat on a bathroom wall), I found alot of other bomb threats that have occurred at wal-marts, all leading to evacuation. In other words - they shut down business at wal-mart for hours.
In fact, while reading these stories, I found that -

'Wal-Mart's policy is to evacuate'

here is a very uncomplete list of bomb threats to wal-marts that i found online -
