Tampa, Florida -- Walmart has come out with an official statement regarding the closing of the Brandon store due to plumbing issues.

Walmart spokesperson Amanda Henneberg has released the following:

With the assistance of contractors and mechanical engineers we have undergone a comprehensive process to identify the plumbing repairs and upgrades the store will receive. We are now ready to begin requesting some of the initial permits that may be needed to begin demolition for the work required while we finalize the design plans for submittal to the city for review. We still anticipate reopening the store within the next six months, in time for the holiday season.
Given the unique circumstances of the temporary closure, we continue to focus on our associates and have added benefits and made a series of policy exceptions, including identifying transfer opportunities for more than half of the associates who have requested to continue working at local area stores, offering severance pay for part-time associates and committing to return associates to the same rate of pay or higher if they are rehired for the same job.
10 News learned that some of the repairs and upgrade to the stores include, demolition to repair sagging, damaged, and obstructed sanitary plumbing lines throughout the building and installation of all new plumbing, fixtures and finishes; installation of new sanitary plumbing system to support existing operations and revised grocery layout; new design and layout for the fresh (meat, produce, bakery and dairy areas), baby and electronics enhanced electronics departments; updated equipment in register lineup; enhanced and more convenient Pick-Up locations; and a new roof and new 4,000 square foot liquor store expansion
