2 Pr. George's Wal-Marts shut to check for damage
Two Wal-Mart stores in Prince George’s County were shut down Friday while authorities checked for possible structural damage in the wake of the recent heavy snowstorms, authorities said.
A spokesman for county executive Jack Johnson said water was leaking into a store in Bowie; he said an interior wall at a store in the Landover area showed signs of buckling. Both stores were closed until they could be inspected by structural engineers, said Jim Keary, a spokesman for Johnson.
He said it appeared melting and refreezing of heavy snow caused the problem at the Landover area store, which is on Annapolis Road. It was spotted about 8:20 p.m.
