Employees and customers are not buying Walmart’s explanation that it is closing five nationwide stores for six months due to “plumbing” issues, with questions swirling about the sudden closures that left hundreds of workers unemployed.

As we reported yesterday, Walmart stores in Pico Rivera, California, Livingston, Texas, Midland, Texas, Brandon, Florida, and Tulsa, Oklahoma, all announced that they were abruptly closing for the exact same reason – plumbing problems that would take six months to resolve. The explanation caused consternation given that entire Walmart stores have been built within the same time frame.

Employees were told the same day that they were going to be laid off, prompting questions as to why the repair work was not planned in advance. Director of Public Works James Enriquez said a Walmart in Pico Rivera, California, had not even notified authorities of plumbing problems, despite the fact that the company would be required to pull permits before undertaking extensive work.

Customers reacted to the announcements by expressing their skepticism at the “plumbing” explanation.

“Why is it just plumbing problems? It’s gonna take them six months to fix up the store?” John Mambrl told WTSP.

10 News also reported that no plumbing trucks were seen at the Walmart in Brandon, Florida, while city officials said they had no record of any code violation at the store. Officials also visited the site and found no evidence of any repair work taking place.
