Woman spends three days inside Lilburn Wal-Mart shopping
By Christy Smith
LILBURN - While Gwinnett County's three malls fill with last-minute shoppers, the Wal-Mart in Lilburn hosted a woman on a three-day shopping spree last week.
Lilburn Police Detective Matt Lake said the 70-year-old woman spent three days inside the Wal-Mart at 4004 Lawrenceville Highway (U.S. Highway 29). She ate at the Blimpie, he said, although no information was available as to how she slept in the 24-hour store.
The woman's name and the accompanying police report was unavailable at press time.
Assistant Manager Danny Black declined to comment. Members of Wal-Mart's public relations staff did not return calls for information by press time.
"She spent three straight days in Wal-Mart," Lake said. "Employees called the police department. She asked an officer for a ride home, she paid for her merchandise and the Lilburn police gave her a ride home."
No information was available as to what the woman purchased or the cost of the merchandise she had amassed during three days of shopping. "LINK"
This is why Wal-Mart rules, where else can you spend 3 days warm from the cold, dry from the rain and safe from the flying bullets. Watch a few DVD's play some Halo3, need some exercise just pull a bike down off the rack and go for a spin. Need some rest test one of the recliners out, upset stomach head over to the pharmacy.
I like to think of Wal-Mart as a biosphere with a Blimpie's
