Officials say a bomb threat was called in at 5:21 p.m. The store was evacuated shortly thereafter. Units from Jackson County Fire Rescue and Emergency Management also responded to the scene, and a sniffer dog was brought in from Bay County to search the store for explosives. The business reopened approximately two and a half hours later.
