You better watch out and you better not cry because it’s that time of year again. Christmas time is upon us and everybody is busy as a bee doing some last-minute shopping. It’s all fun and games until someone gets hurt. Toxic fumes drive out shopper from Secaucus Mall, prompting the management to shut down the establishment until further notice.
It’s one thing to get into the Christmas mood, but it’s entirely another one when that mood comes and runs over you. We all know how hard it is to choose that one perfect gift for our loved ones. And this certainly comes at a price: hours upon hours of walking, window-shopping and all the mania of comparing several price tags.
According to several inland reports, it would seem that some shoppers from New Jersey had to cut short their late Christmas shopping session. On Sunday night, local authorities were summoned to the nearby Kohl’s due to several people complaining that there’s something amiss in the air.

According to their statements, several people were complaining that there was something heavy in the air and some of the shoppers exhibited breathing issues.
Prompted by the distress call, the local police, fire and hazmat units were dispatched to the location in order to assess the situation. When arriving at the scene, authorities have discovered that there was indeed something not right at the department store.
Several spokespersons from police and fire departments declared that there was indeed a strange odour in the air. Most of the have come to suspect that the patient’s who display breathing issues may have been very close to its source.
In order to discover the source of the toxic fumes, authorities have decided to evacuate the department store as a precaution. Efforts are now made to see were the mysterious fumes originated from.
If everything checks out okay, then the department store can shortly resume its activities. According to the shop’s management, it would seem that all stores belong to Koehl’s are opened 24-hours until the first day of Christmas.
