KITCHENER – Police in Guelph say a suspicious package at Walmart near Woodlawn and Woolwich was a false alarm.
Earlier on Thursday evening, they had sent a news release warning the public that they were investigating a suspicious package.
People were turned away from the parking lot and were being asked to leave the area while police investigated.
Just before 6 p.m., the area reopened to the public.
