Walmart, 2023

According to the January 26 article "Walmart, Sam's Club in Scarborough closed due to roof concerns", Walmart in Scarborough has been closed because there are safety concerns regarding the extra snow and water that has accumulated on the roofs of the buildings.

On Thursday morning at about ten o'clock, according to Deputy Chief John Brennan of the Scarborough Police Department, personnel came to the Walmart because the roof was leaking.

"These flat roofs are designed to drain, but the amount of water on the roof suggested a drainage problem," Brennan said. "This led to a concerning amount of weight on the roofs."

The store is closed until further notice.
