JONESBORO, AR (KAIT) - A water line break has caused some stores to be closed in a Jonesboro mall.
A representative with The Mall at Turtle Creek, 3000 E. Highland Dr., released a statement Thursday morning.
Businesses at the south end of the mall are closed until further notice. At least 8 stores are closed.
Gamble Home Furnishings is one of the stores that is closed due to flooding.
"Whenever we came to the front of the store you saw the water just piled up," said store manager Scott Richmond. "It was from a column all the way down halfway to Chico's, like it was all in front of our store and so you knew it was going to be bad"
The mall's statement shows the issue is fixed and clean up is underway.
Initially, a post on the mall's Facebook page stated the closure was due to a power outage.
A spokesperson for the mall said officials originally thought the entire mall would need to be closed. However, once they further inspected the situation officials determined only a section needed to be closed.
