WEST MICHIGAN (NEWSCHANNEL 3) - Bomb threats shut down Wal-Mart stores across the country Friday night, including two in West Michigan.

The Wal-Mart store in Grandville received a bomb threat around 9:45 p.m., and minutes later, another threat was received at the Wal-Mart Supercenter on North Park Drive in Holland Township.

Police evacuated the shoppers inside both of those stores just before 10 p.m.

Deputies searched the Holland Township store for more than an hour, along with a K-9 unit.

They did not find any hazardous materials in either store.

Local dispatchers said they were aware the threats could be a widespread trend.

Hours before the threats in Michigan, Wal-Mart stores in North Dakota and California evacuated as well.

Police set up perimeters and scoured both stores for evidence of bombs.

They did not find any danger in either Wal-Mart.

No one was injured as a result of any of the threats, and both stores are back open as of Saturday morning.
