Another great save for a sprinkler system ! No one was injured, the store will be opened soon and no one lost their jobs.
I did note the comment that the sprinklers did not go off "store wide".
The only sprinklers that operate are the ones closest to the fire. It is a myth created by movies and TV commercials that all of the sprinkler heads operate at the same time.

How totally ignorant can people be. Don't they realize, because of there actions we all have to suffer. Prices are sky high now. It will just give them a reason to raise them even though everything in the store is insured.

Having gone to a lot of Wal Marts in the Mid West, I must say the Wood River Wal Mart is one of the best if not the best. I hate it that this had to happen to such a hard working store. I know it's not all peaches and cream working at a Wal Mart, but Wood River store please know that some of us really appreciate your hard work and notice it! Hope that all turns out for the best, that not much product is lost, that justice is served on the vandals and thank God no one was hurt.

They are throwing away EVERYTHING in the store for insurance reasons. No giving it to the needy, just trashing it all. That is so inconsiderate. I'm glad I don't shop at Wal-Mart. They are a menace to our society.

Same thing would be done if it was a Target, Kmart, Sears its the Insurance Companys not the stores that require this. I LOVE WALMART.

They probalby have standards to what they legally "can" and "can't" throw out. I am sure even a homeless person wouldn't want some of those cosmetics that are burnt. They stuff that is still in "useable" condition will probalby be put on clarence. They paid for the inventory, they sell it the way they want.:+)

They are not a menice to the society! How do you expect to all that to the needy, when half of it IS UNUSABLE!? Most of it is damaged from smoke and fire. So please tell me how are they going to give it to the needy when it's in bad condition?!?!?!
