Taylor Walmart Reopens After Black Friday Evacuation
An alarm blaring at the Walmart in Taylor caused the store to empty out and then close for several hours Black Friday, one of the busiest retail days of the year.
The alarm sounded shortly after 3:15 p.m., according to the Lackwanna County 911 Center. Fire Chief Wes Jones said a malfunction of the fire service water lines outside the store triggered the alarm. There was no fire.
The store reopened at 7:45 p.m., according to the local Walmart’s Facebook page.
