Warwick, RI Macy’s Repoens One Year After Devastating Flood

WARWICK, R.I. (AP) — Macy’s department store has reopened its Warwick Mall location almost a year after record rainfall and severe flooding forced its closure.

Aram Garabedian, co-managing partner of the mall, says the completely renovated store, based on Macy’s latest store prototype, reopened on Tuesday.

He says Macy’s, which accounts for close to a fifth of the mall’s floor space, is one of the mall’s key anchor stores.

The mall was closed for months as crews cleaned up after about two feet of water flooded the shopping center last March. Its first store reopened in May and more reopened over the summer.

Garabedian estimates that the renovation and repair cost nearly $110 million.
