The typical haunting takes place in an abandoned asylum or dilapidated mansion on the edge of town. However, sometimes ghosts lurk in the most mundane of locations, such as the florescent-lit aisles of a local Wal-Mart or the bathroom of a popular fast food joint. Here are 5 haunted chain restaurants and shops in America.
The ghost of a woman killed in an elevator accident reportedly haunts the Wal-Mart in Panorama City, CA. According to reports, a female apparition appears on the third floor, and merchandise tumbles to the ground when there’s no one around. Eerie feelings in the elevators and upper floors is another common complaint. One evening, a department manager heard someone call his name and felt a tap on his back. However, no one was there when he turned around.
Note: Someone really did die in an elevator accident at this location, but it wasn’t a woman. It was a 15-year-old boy named Durrell Beazer. In 1985, Beazer and two friends got stuck in the elevator and crawled out through the top. Unfortunately, the elevator then moved and crushed Durrell with its weights. The accident happened at The Broadway department store which is now Wal-Mart.
