Protecting Shoppers from Negligence
Big box stores and wholesale clubs offer lower prices by cutting the staffing and frills of traditional retail spaces. In an attempt to woe value-conscious customers, some stores have gone too far, creating dangerous conditions in an effort to keep prices low.

Faulty Building Conditions
The large warehouses that house big box stores are typically enormous, cluttered and stacked to the ceiling with goods. You could almost get lost in the store without a map to find the exit. The size of these warehouses is an aspect that helps the company sell more, but invites a fire trap for shoppers.
These retailers make their money on volume, having considerably narrowed the profit margin between production costs and selling price. The overstocked shelves and crowded aisles, however, create a serious safety hazard. A box that falls off a 10-foot high shelf can result in serious head or spinal cord injuries and items strewn across your path are trip hazards.
Slip & Fall Accidents
All stores have a duty to make regular inspections for unsafe conditions, including checking for dropped containers and jars of liquids that create slip hazards. With minimal staff to inspect large premises, spilled liquids often go unnoticed for unacceptable stretches of time.
Stairwell & Ramp Accidents
Stairwells and ramps present common locations for accidents at large corporate retailers. Customers leaving wholesale clubs and big box stores are often loaded down with packages. Poorly constructed or maintained outlets unnecessarily increase the chances of falls.
