Woman spends three days inside Lilburn Wal-Mart shopping

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.
