(NaturalNews) Wal-Mart has suddenly announced it is shuttering five stores from Florida to California for a six-month period due to what the company claims are “plumbing problems.” Nobody except the ultra-gullible really believes the Wal-Mart cover story, however.
“The retail chain announced Monday that five stores are shutting down – one in Brandon, two in Texas, one in Oklahoma and one in California – due to clogging and drainage problems,” reports News Channel 8 in Florida.
The sudden closures were only announced five hours before they took place, thrusting thousands of employees out of work with little or no notice.
Seriously? Does anybody believe the official explanation?
What’s really raising eyebrows across the web is the mathematical improbability that five large Wal-Mart stores would all experience catastrophic plumbing problems at exactly the same day, all requiring exactly the same duration of closures: six months. The very idea that a plumbing problem could be so catastrophic that it would require shuttering an entire store for six months ranks right up there with some of the most ridiculously implausible cover-up explanations we’ve heard over the years such as “steel-reinforced concrete buildings suddenly collapse in perfect demolition style when they suffer from a few small office fires.”
The cover story is so lacking in credibility that every informed person across the internet is laughing like crazy at the sheer stupidity of it. 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 WFLA.com. “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.”
Five reasons why Wal-Mart’s closure story is obviously a cover story
Reason #1) Wal-Mart apparently wants us to believe that it is impossible to repair plumbing problems without shutting down your business for six months. This idea is totally insane: plumbers repair catastrophic problems all day, every day, while businesses remain open everywhere.
Commercial plumbing companies conduct heroic repairs at hotels, casinos, factories and large retail establishments without interfering with those business operations. This loony idea that five Wal-Mart stores have suddenly — and simultaneously — experienced catastrophic plumbing problems requiring stores to close can only be believed by the most incredibly gullible people alive today.
