The Home Depot store at Kings Highway and Grasmere Avenue has reopened after being evacuated this morning when a "bomb threat" was found scrawled on a wall.

The store reopened to customers and staff about an hour after the threat was discovered about 9 a.m. Nothing suspicious was found during a search of the premises, police said.

The store had been cleared while a search was underway as a precaution, and police also blocked off area streets.

The "threat," however, apparently had been written several days earlier, according to police.
