In April 2015, Walmart closed five of its stores for alleged plumbing problems. In September, the company announced that the stores would be reopened and a local news outlet is reporting that the Florida store is now indeed open for business.
According to the report, “During the past four months, contractors filed permits for upgrades to the store, including one for a new roof.” What about the plumbing? According to the Hillsborough County government website:
A permit is required by any owner, authorized agent, or contractor who desires to construct, enlarge, alter, repair, move, demolish, or change the occupancy of a building or structure, or to erect, install, enlarge, alter, repair, remove, convert or replace any electrical, gas, mechanical, or plumbing system.
