Dillard's Re-opens

JONESBORO, Ark. (KAIT) - A major store at the Mall at Turtle Creek will be opening its doors June 2.

Officials said Friday that Dillard’s will be reopening after being damaged in the March 28 Jonesboro tornado.

Dillard’s, along with J.C. Penney, each did about $2 million worth of work to their buildings. Dillard’s replaced the north wall of their store and suffered roof damage, while J.C. Penney put on a new roof at the building.

The store will be open from 11 a.m. to 7 p.m. every day.

On Thursday, Jonesboro city officials released details about the work being done at the Mall at Turtle Creek.

The mall suffered major damage after an EF-3 tornado touched down in the city on March 28.

According to Jonesboro City Communications Director Bill Campbell, some stores could possibly reopen independently as they can.

Campbell said that electricity has been restored to everything damaged, west of the food court.

In addition, the city has deemed the food court to be structurally sound.

According to Campbell, Victoria's Secret and Bath and Body Works were two stores on the west side of the food court that did not have major damage.

There are no set dates available on when the other stores will open.

Region 8 News is still waiting to hear specific details on the future of the Mall at Turtle Creek from Brookfield Properties.
