Albany - - A bomb scare at the Sam's Club Thursday afternoon forced customers and all store employees to evacuate. 

At 4:30, managers say someone called in a bomb threat. Five minutes later, an employee found a suspicious box in the back of the store.

Everyone was told to leave. Customers say they were startled. 

"We had our cart completely full getting ready to check out when they came over the loud speaker saying, 'everyone get out just as fast as you can'...I didn't know what to think," says Millard Snell.

Albany Police and the Fire Department were called out to the scene to investigate. Turns out, there was nothing dangerous in the store. Employees  returned to work at 6 PM.
