Walmart limits students' access to store during lunch hour

ESN students looking to grab a bite to eat at the Bathurst Walmart are being made to wait in line outside the store.

After several incidents of poor behaviour, the store, which contains a McDonald's restaurant, is only letting students in ten-at-a-time.

The rules have been in effect since Monday.

Some parents understand the reasoning behind the new rules, but feel its a shame students are being punished for the bad behaviour of a few.

The Bathurst Police Department meanwhile, says it has received complaints from the store but that no charges have been laid.

Cst. Jeff Chiasson says the force has been stepping up patrols in that area.
