  • The Livingston, txt store has had plumbing problems. The store has a smell to it. I worked there three years and transferred to the porter store to be closer to home. Livingston store is very busy. What they found out is the five stores were builded the same year by the same plumbing contractor. The pipes under the ground inside the store are rotting, not holding up. All five stores were having the same problems. So think about it the contractor must have cut corners to save money instead of doing it the right way and was able to get it past the inspector. So to fix the problem, you hAve to bust the concret. Can't do that with customers and employees and stuff inside there. And also it a health problem when it come to sewage.
