My friend who is a building inspector says that the Lewisburg Wal-Mart is built on a giant sink hole and that there are major cracks in the building and parking lot. He thinks that this Wal-Mart is very dangerous and should close. Is anybody else afraid that they will be inside this store if it falls into a giant sink hole?

Ya know years ago when it opened I was terrified to go in there because my dad told me the same thing. That it would fall in just give it time and that it wasn't safe. I hope they do something about this before we end up with a tragedy on our hands.

I can't believe that they aren't going to do something. I mean do they not care that they are putting people in danger. THAT IS CRAZY.

That rumor has been going around since wal-mart opened, its just a local urban legend! It is true that there is huge cave system under wal-mart but all of greenbrier and monroe countys have a huge cave system under it so dont believe the old urban legend!

Just look in the parking lot and around the store. You can see the cracks (and lots of them). I will now shop at K Mart.

actually that is not true due to cavers and them not wanting good cave to filled in, they went and had it petitioned. So no the cave below W.M is not filled in with cement but it probably has at least ten or more years before anything like that happens

I heard at one time a few weeks ago,that Wal-Mart is thinking about buying the K-Mart, tearing it down and building a new Wal-Mart there. They would them close the current store since it is so dangerous and it is built on a sink hole.
