Interesting. The fire department was at the Bradford, PA Walmart when I left there a couple of hours ago. No idea why they were there but I was able to come and go.

The deals were so hot at the Bradford Wal-Mart that someone's vehicle caught fire

That's one good way to just walk out of the store with your pockets full. Sounds like someone had a big plan to do some shoplifting for christmas. I think that its about time the authorities start locking up these morons who pull this crap.

Let me guess, some disgruntled worker that's pissed that WM isn't paying them $15+/hour to have a crappy attitude called in a bomb threat to get even with the man.

I thought this store was officially known as the St. Mary's Wal-Mart? Yes the store is in Fox Twp., no where close to Kersey.

Great, one more reason for me to not go Black Friday shopping.

Fox township is Kersey. Wal-Mart pays Fox taxes. Wal-Mart should be Kersey Wal-Mart not St. Mary's.

This bomb-threat crap is getting out of control. There's no reason for it, and I really hope they find out who did it and then they should strap a bomb onto them and stick them out in a field and threaten whether it not they're gonna set it off.

Probably a prank. Lots of drug attics and other hanus dildines living in Saint Marys' so this does not surprise me.

It has been --- WALMART --- for several years. It is no longer hyphenated. Yes, at one time it was St Mary's WALMART, but differences between St Mary's and WALMART changed that.

It is in Fox Township, site permit, sewage, and taxes all go to the Fox Township offices in KERSEY. Also, there is no apostrophe in St. Marys.
