Thanks for posting so quickly!
I wonder if the process of seizing the property/getting a big corporation to agree to closing such stores all at once was part of the trial run leading up to what Jade Helm represents--how do the business, the public and employees respond, which excuses generate the least media hubbub and allow for greatest expediency, etc. The short notice to closing for employees (and likely the managers, for that matter) seems really drastic and unnecessary--they could have given them a few days more advanced notice, for Pete's sake. It does underscore how things must be heating up, and how draconian these moves are/will be.Q: (Pierre) What's so special about those five WalMarts?
A: Size, suitability, location.
Q: (Perceval) Do they have anything to do with these planned Jade Helm military exercises this summer?
A: Ultimately, but not quite yet.
