GREENWOOD, S.C. (AP) -- A store in Greenwood was evacuated for about an hour during holiday shopping because of a telephoned threat.
The Wal-Mart was evacuated around 7:30 p.m. on Thanksgiving Day after the call came in to dispatchers.
It reopened about an hour later.
Wal-Mart spokeswoman Kayla Whaling says the store was evacuated as a precaution while sheriff's deputies checked the building.
Maj. William Kenny says officers were searching for a device. About a dozen officers were involved. There was no word on whether they found anything suspicious.
No one was hurt.
