Was the old Save Mart in Chowchilla haunted?

There are rumors that the old Save Mart in Chowchilla was haunted. An employee stated that when she used to work there late at night she would feel some sort of presence watching her as she cleaned up the aisles. Sometimes she would also feel the same presence following her when she went into the break room. And another employee who worked the day shift also felt something watching him, but only when he was in the break room.

When the store was finally closed and no one in the building, people outside would report seeing someone walking around the store after midnight. Also, shadowy figures would be seen late at night, once again when the store was closed.

Some customers would also report that they would hear whispering voices around them, even when no one was near enough to make any sound.

The building was closed sometime before 2008 when a new Save Mart was built on Robertson Blvd. As far as I know the new building has no paranormal activity. As for the old building, it is still closed and is not in use. One has to wonder if the ghosts still wander the building, unaware that there is no one else there?

I live near the old Savemart supermarket in Chowchilla. It has been known in the past by employees that it is truly haunted. They recently built a new Savemart supermarket grocery store on the opposite end of the town, but the old haunted store still remains abandoned. I was taking my dog for a walk one night and I happened to glance over the the store, and I clearly saw figures walking around inside the store! I thought someone had broke in so I called the police to go check it out. I had given the my number to get back to me and let me know if someone broke in to the abandoned savemart store. The police called me back and asked if they can come to my home to ask some questions and of course I let them. They asked me exactly what I saw, and I told them I saw dark figures running around in the store! The police told me that no one was in teh store and there were no signs of vandalism! So I believe I saw the ghosts that the store is so famous for in Chowchilla. Very creepy!

The Dollar General Market is where the old Save Mart was. There has been shadow people seen in the diffrent sets of apartments that sit behind the old Save Mart, and whats with all the sink holes??? I wonder if they built all those buildings on an old burial ground with out moving the bodies.
