GREENWOOD, SC – Wal-Mart was forced to evacuate the store in the midst of Black Friday shopping after sources say there was bomb threat at the store.

Shoppers were forced to leave their buggies full of sale items and leave their spots in line when deputies with the Greenwood County Sheriff’s Office and store employees evacuated the store. Some customers had been in line for items beginning as early as 4 p.m. Customers waited outside the store for nearly an hour before the all-clear was given and they were allowed to return to shopping.

The Sheriff’s Office declined to comment on the situation officially, saying only that they responded to a 911 call at Wal-Mart. Sources close to the situation confirmed that a bomb threat was called in to the store. Wal-Mart management declined comment as well, saying that statements would be forthcoming from their corporate office.

Northwest Fire Department and Greenwood County EMS responded to the scene in addition to the Sheriff’s Office.
