  1. My parents own this building with another couple. One night the guy from the other couple was checking stock and he was too cheap to buy a hotel so he stayed the night. (At this point the building is now slumberland furniture) as he was about to lie down on a bed he heard a crash in the warehouse. He didn’t really think anything of it because it happens all the time. Later, he heard scratches on the walls all around him. And about 2 A.M. he finally lied down and a few minutes later he felt a presence next to him in the bed, when he looked, nothing was there.
    About a month later my mom was at the store and one of the workers used the bathroom and came out really angry because she thought someone was banging on the door to scare her and she said “Okay who was banging on the bathroom door?” My mom and her coworkers looked at each other confused, they all said they hadn’t moved from their seats the whole time. Later that day my mom was helping a costumer in the mattress section and her and the costumer heard loud bangs on the window My mom went to check what was causing the sound and nothing was there. she asked another sales person if they heard it and they didn’t know what she was talking about. also all the employees refuse to go upstairs to get anything.
