Five Walmart stores closed suddenly this week in four states.
One of those stores was in Tulsa at Admiral and Memorial. Two were in Texas, one was in California and one was in Florida.
Walmart says the stores are temporarily closed because of plumbing issues and will reopen in about six months.
It didn’t take long for the conspiracies to spread. Some say the stores are being prepped to become FEMA detention centers as part of a ‘dry run’ for a martial law situation.
Another conspiracy says radioactive food was delivered to those stores and now they need to be ‘decontaminated.’
A less bizarre theory is that asbestos was found in those buildings.
KRMG contacted Walmart’s corporate office to get the reaction to such ideas.
“I think that sometimes the truth is just a little boring.” Walmart spokesperson Erica Jones said.
Jones told KRMG the issues have reached the point that they cannot be fixed while the stores are open.
